The Temple of Apollo is part of the charming ancient Island of Ortigia.
Considered the oldest Doric temple in Sicily, the Temple of Apollo was built by Greek in VII-VI century. B.C. It is located in the fascinating centre of the Island of Ortigia close to Piazza XXV Luglio. Dedicated to Cleisthenes, a tyrant of Syracuse, the temple has massive proportions and it included six narrowly spaced columns on both sides with massive capitals.
On the east side it is possible to admire an unusual inscription containing an homage to Apollo.
