This ancient church of Ortigia is definitely worth visiting.
Dating from 326 AD, it was entirely excavated in the rock and was once completely covered by Byzantine frescoes, of which interesting traces remain.
The various eras have left tangible signs in its structures, so that alongside the Byzantine style there are Norman, Aragonese, Renaissance and even Baroque elements.
The stone blocks of the internal walls allow you to guess the original orientation of the church.
Among the medieval elements, a beautiful Gothic portal has been preserved on the side of the church.
An interesting modern environment has recently restored dignity to a church that in recent centuries had been deconsecrated and used for many different uses.
