The remains of a very old Greek temple in a nicely kept garden area. There isn't a lot to see but it does lend atmosphere and is adjacent to that lovely traditional food market.
I expected more, maybe because of the local market who just finished with all the mess around in the neighbourhoud.
Then this is for you. If you don't (and even if you do, after your visit), visit the daily markets next door for some delicious fresh food - the fish is amazing - and then wander up the main street to the Fountain of Diana. A good starting point for your day in Ortigia!
Ortygia is wonderful and this temple is well worth a visit. the Columns from 600BC are stone. perhaps the first stone columns in these parts. they are fat and inelegant. this temple was perhaps the starting point of the classical orders. its thought the roof over these stubby, close to together columns was wooden. well worth comparing this to Segesta...

The ruins of this old temple remain at the entrance to Ortygia in Siracusa. You need to know its history to truly appreciate it - ask locals, or read the materials available at the site itself. Starting your excursion through Ortygia here and heading to Piazza Duomo makes this place truly magical
Amazing to come across this ancient site, situated at the junction of a busy road, quite near the market. Unfortunately the information on the board was only in Italian, so of limited interest.
