Ortigia Vacations: Things to see while on vacation in Ortigia Sicily

Origia or Ortygia, is an island that is located adjacent to the town of Syracuse. The island is connected to the mainland via two bridges that allow traffic to flow to the island. Located on the island you will find the Castello Maniace which was built between 1232 and 1240 by one of the Emperors of the Roman Empire during the Middle Ages. The Temple of Apollo is another example of an ancient Greek temple that was built in the 6th century BC. Over the centuries the temple was converted into a Byzantine church and then later a Muslim Mosque. The original building, located in front of Piazza Pancali, was uncovered after being excavated in 1942.
