Ragusa: introduction

Ragusa Hotel

The name "Ragusa" is derived from the Greek-Byzantine term "Rogos", meaning "granary". The city is sited approximately 500 meters above sea level, in a hilly landscape, close to all of the principal Sicilian cities.

Ragusa is divided in two, Ragusa Superiore and Ragusa Inferiore, known also as "Ibla", (originally Hibla Heraia). It is in Ragusa Inferiore that the most important monuments can be found, buildings such as the Church of St Maria delle Scale, the Cathedral of St Giovanni Battista, the Church of Purgatory with its Baroque portal, and Palazzo Donnafugata in which there are splendid paintings assigned to Antonello da Messina.

The principal economic activities of Ragusa are linked to agriculture, craftsmanship, tourism. The vibrant Via Roma is the heart of the city life.

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. (Hotel Cavalieri) →
