The feudal lord Matteo Sclafani, Earl of Adernò, was in constant competition with his brother, who built Palazzo Chiaramonte.Sclafani's response to this was precisely to raise close to the Norman Palace the Scalfani Palace, in 1330. In 1435 he found instead that the town hospital has changed its original face, and in 1832 was later converted into barracks. The building has been announced by the fresco of the... continue

Its official name is the Basilica of the Holy Trinity of the Chancellor but is commonly known as the Basilica della Magione. The church was founded, along with the Cistercian abbey, by Chancellor of the Kingdom Matthew Norman Ajello in 1191.

We know with certainty that this place existed in the first Christian cathedral of the city in the fourth century, although we are not sure if today's church is something of this. In the ninth century with the arrival of the Saracens it was transformed into a mosque. The Normans wanted to build here the capital of their kingdom; a magnificent cathedral would represent their power and their Christianity. So works... continue

The first church was built in Renaissance style in the fifteenth century but it was rebuilt in the seventeenth century by the Dominican priest and Andrea Cirrincione, while the façade with two bell towers is even more recent, from the eighteenth century. So today we have a sober Baroque church. The interior is very spacious with eight columns on each side, in Tuscan style, which divide the three naves according to... continue

The Botanical Garden was established in 1779 to accommodate a small garden. The goal was the cultivation of "simple" medicinal plants, useful to teaching and public health. Already in 1786 it was decided to transfer it to a more appropriate site, near Villa Giulia. The construction of the main building of the Garden, in the neoclassical style, was completed in 1795. It consists of a central building, the Gymnasium,... continue

Near Cala in Palermo we can find the Church of Santa Maria della Catena. The church owes its name to the long chain attached to its outer wall that blocks access to the ancient port of Palermo. Here there was already a small chapel in the fifteenth century when they began the work of today's church. It was built by the architect Matteo Carnilivari between 1490 and 1520. It is a beautiful example of Renaissance... continue

The Church of St. John of the Hermits is a symbol of the city of Palermo and it is an episode of its rich repertoire of architecture. Its red domes that give an impression of the East are perhaps the best known of the city. Although today it is desecrated, it was once the residence of the abbot confessor of the king. It was built by Roger II in 1132, probably over the remnants of an Arab mosque. Its name comes from... continue

Have at least two hours for this park. I spent four hours because the Ear of Dionysius surprised us with a wonderful acoustics and we wished to play with sounds more. The Roman amphitheatre is located closer to the entrance. I guess, to preserve it better, they don't let you walk inside of it. The Greek amphitheatre, a craved in stone ancient theater is located further away and open for everybody to walk its stairs.... continue

Other stalls were selling fresh vegetables and fruit in season. There was one busy trailer selling a wide variety of cheeses and sausages. A few other stalls selling hats, scarves, leather goods, second hand books and somewhat tacky cheap imported... continue

Siracusa has apparently got some small beaches of its own. We found one near the 'piccolo porto' which is pretty small but really well kept, mostly privately managed. Then we took the road out south to Arenella which has a very nice sweeping beach with a small car park just behind. There were no facilities as it was the end of December but we've been lucky with the weather as we had bright sunshine and temperatures... continue
