Syracuse. Sicily. Italy. View of the Piazza Duomo, an attractive irregular square, which is surrounded by harmonious and striking Baroque buildings. The highlight of the square is the Duomo, a 7th century AD church with an 18th century Baroque façade, built on the foundations and incorporating the Doric columns from the 5th century BC Greek Temple of Athena. The Piazza Duomo is located on the tiny island of Ortygia, the original settlement of Syracuse, a former power house of the Mediterranean, located on the south east corner of Sicily.
