Ortigia1

Siracusa-Sicily

 6-7 people

Origia 1 and Ortigia 2 are two big, luxurious and comfortable apartments set on the same floor of a building on the amazing ancient part of the city of Syracuse, the fascinating island of Ortigia.
Its natural features explain the creation and lastingness of human settlement from remote past to the present day.
Crossing the bridge that separates Ortigia from the modern city of Syracuse, you will have the feeling of being enveloped by a magic, separated world.
From the fifth millennium BC, and the period of Greek colonization, Sicily had a strong cultural influx from the eastern Mediterranean.
The myth most associated with the town is the story of the
burning passion which united Alpheus, the river of Elis, with the nymph Arethusa and reminds us of the cultural heritage that the Greeks brought to Syracuse, the metaphorical bridge to the 
western Mediterranean. In Pindar's splendid evocation, he tells us how Ortigia was considered sacred by the goddess Artemis.
Thank to recent restoration, Piazza del Duomo has been returned 
to its full architectural glory and is considered one of the most beautiful of Sicily's baroque piazzas. 
The cathedral area has been the centre of life for four thousand years. The archaeological remains of indigenous communities of 
the second millennium BC have been found here, together with evidence dating back to the eighth century BC, the period when Greeks from Corinth established their first sacred site here. 
The foundation of the town, which became the most famous 
of the Greek cities, dates back to the arrival of the Corinthians 
and the construction of the original nucleus of the sanctuary.
In this place was built the famous temple of Athena in 480 BC, 
later transformed into a Christian church and, in the sixth century, into a Cathedral.
The development process went on until the 19th century, when the open area facing the great harbour, was transformed into a square bordered by late-baroque style buildings. Ortigia has thousands of years of building activity and also the modern buildings reveal their dependence on the ancient-Greek town plan. 
And extraordinary nature have framed the events, making the emotional impact we have each time we see Ortigia, even stronger.
