About Isola Ortigia

Home to some of Syracuse’s oldest buildings, Ortigia is a charming island on the south-east coast of Sicily. It is said to be where the ancient Greek goddess Leto gave birth to Artemis and where Asteria metamorphosed into a quail, with the name “Ortigia” derived from the ancient Greek word for quail, “Ortyx”. Boasting atmospheric architecture and waterfront restaurants, Ortigia is one of Syracuse’s most popular tourist areas.

Things to do in Isola Ortigia

In the heart of Ortigia is the Temple of Apollo, a 6th-century-BC monument believed to be one of the oldest Doric temples in Sicily. It has undergone numerous transformations throughout its history, becoming a Byzantine church before being incorporated into a 16th-century Spanish barracks. Wander between the atmospheric ruins before exploring the adjacent Old Market, where you’ll find fresh produce and artisan goods.

On the south-west coast of Ortigia is the Arethusa Spring, an ancient fountain planted with papyrus that has been mentioned in works by William Wordsworth and Herman Melville. A coastal walking trail connects to the beautiful Giardino Aretusa and several waterfront restaurants serving authentic Sicilian and Mediterranean cuisine.

Continue walking south to the Castello Maniace, a 13th-century military fortification that dominates the southern tip of Ortigia. Constructed by Emperor Frederick II and used as a prison in the 15th century, it is named after a Byzantine general who took Syracuse in 1038. Admire the castle’s decorated portal before exploring the interior where changing art exhibitions are showcased.
