Noto: introduction

Noto Hotel

A Baroque masterpiece in the province of Siracusa: Noto. Such is the town's beauty that it has been awarded status as Cultural Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO. The ancient city of Neas, was known as Neatum by the Greeks, became Netum under Roman rule, and acquired its present name "Noto", under the Arab dominion.

A powerful earthquake completely destroyed the town in 1693, leading to Noto being rebuilt in sumptuous Baroque style. The reconstruction work was supervised by the Duke of Camastra, representative of the Spanish viceroy in Sicily.

Grandiose flights of steps lead worshippers and tourists alike up to the ornately carved entrance doors of the churches, the roads open out in to sweeping piazzas lined by palaces built in a stone of soft pink and golden yellow hues.

A tour of Noto might start from the main square where to visit Palazzo Ducezio, Palazzo Vescovile, Palazzo Lanolina, the Church of San Domenico and, of course, the town's magnificent Cathedral to name but a few of the many buildings worth visiting in Noto.

Syracuse is a historic city in Sicily, the capital of the province of Syracuse. The city is notable for its rich Greek history, culture, amphitheatres, architecture, and as the birthplace of the preeminent mathematician and engineer Archimedes. This 2,700-year-old city played a key role in ancient times, when it was one of the major powers of the Mediterranean world. Syracuse is located in the southeast corner of the island of Sicily, right by the Gulf of Syracuse next to the Ionian Sea. The city was founded by Ancient Greek Corinthians and became a very powerful city-state. Syracuse was allied with Sparta and Corinth, exerting influence over the entire Magna Grecia area of which it was the most important city. Once described by Cicero as "the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all", it later became part of the Roman Republic and Byzantine Empire. In the modern day, the city is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site along with the Necropolis of Pantalica. (Palazzo Cavalieri) →
