This structure probably dates back to the second half of the 1st century AD, and was initially identified with a gymnasium, but it is not certain; more likely it was a sacred area.

It was located near the Roman Forum of Syracuse, this underlines the importance of the building which today is invaded by water due to the rising sea level.

It includes a small theater that originally had steps covered in marble, and a little temple, which retains the lateral access stairs.

It is all enclosed by a large quadriporticus of about 60 by 50 meters once adorned with statues.

Only the north side of it remains.

On this side there are the bases of three statues; just beyond the portico there is an ancient road that is perhaps the ancient Via Elorina.

Several statues were found on the site, now on display in the Paolo Orsi Regional Museum.

The site is reached by taking the Via Elorina.

The site can be visited free of charge, and is open on Thursday and Saturday from 8:30 to 13:30 and on Friday in the afternoon from 14:00 to 18:30.
