Syracuse. Sicily. Italy. View at the Parco Archeologico of the Ear of Dionysius, an ancient artificial cavern famous for its acoustics and ear like shape. Legend has it that the tyrant of Syracuse ‘Dionysius’ shut his enemies there and listened to their secret conversations from the outside. The cavern is 65 metres long, 5-11 metres wide and 23 metres high and is part of the ancient limestone quarry known as the Gardens of Paradise or Latomia del Paradiso.
