About Cathedral of Santa Maria delle Colonne

The Cathedral of Santa Maria delle Colonne is a forcing structure, overshadowing the Piazza Duomo with its glimmering white towers.

Flanked by the statues of the Apostles Peter and Paul you can achieve the primary entry by an open stairway.

In the rococo façade of Andrea Palmas, the Doric segments of the past building, the previous sanctuary of Athena, are joined and constitute a captivating complexity.

Based on the antiquated Greek sanctuary of Athena, the Cathedral of Syracuse is an exceptionally uncommon feature, which is unparalleled.

Indeed, even by entering the corridor, you stroll into the old world and can wonder about the long history of this hallowed place.

The sanctuary of Athena was established in 480 B.C. by Gelo and Hiero I after the shocking triumph over the Carthaginians.
