    In 'Piazza Duomo' there's this small church.In the apse, behind the altar, there is a large painting of the "Burial of St Lucy" painted by Caravaggio in 1608, during his stay in Syracuse.

    One of my favorite towns in Sicily, Syracuse is the perfect mix of the typical Greek ancient ruins of Sicily, a charming downtown reminiscent of a mainland hill town, the great restaurants and food Italy is known for, and the perfect location in the middle of the Mediterranean.

    It is a small city situated in the south east of Sicily. The city layout and buildings reflect the dominations of different people dominating Sicily islands. The dominant theme is baroque but there are also some cathalan style buildings and the main church is built over an ancient Greek temple. The heart of Syracuse is Ortigia, practically an island. I love Syracuse as at night it becomes romantic and mysterious, with its yellow lights illuminating the important buildings all aroun. Terraces and restaurants become crowded with people and noise. Adorable.

    Syracuse and Palermo are the two I remember worth seeing. Great trekking if you like that; you'll be best off if you pick up some dialect (not italian!) before you go. Recommended reading: _The Leopard_ by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, I Malavoglia by Giovanni Verga, and a big history of the Greek empire, Sicily section.
