The Epipoli road crosses right in the middle of a stretch of the ancient and powerful Dionigian walls of Syracuse.
These are part of the boundary built by the tyrant Dionysius I of Syracuse in the years around 400 BC.
They are preserved only in part.
They were thick between 3 and 5 meters, they were several meters high and had a perimeter of 27 kilometers! They reached the Eurialo Castle.
Due to their historical importance they are among the important works mentioned by UNESCO in Syracuse.
The walls were equipped with doors and towers, and along the perimeter you can still see the numerous stone quarries used for the extraction of rocks for the construction of the walls themselves.
