ALGILÁ ORTIGIA CHARME HOTEL SIRACUSA - charme hotel Sicily
This exquisite 19th building can be found in the heart of the historic centre of Ortigia. It enjoys a magnificent view of the glorious Ortigia sea.
Giving onto the ancient “Mastra Rua” where the Siracusan nobility resided as far back as the 14th century, it is still a starting point for cultural and historical itineraries. Its recent restoration has maintained the original, well-planned structure which is made up of three buildings and this contributes to its dynamic layout.
The hotel is located on the Lungomare in the heart of Ortigia, the historic centre of the city. Piazza Archimede is the main attraction, this square was considered the richest and most elegant part of the city until the end of the 1960’s. There is also the Baroque Piazza Duomo square, with its cathedral built around the remains of the Temple of Athena from the 5th century BC, the Fountain of Aretusa where papyrus grows naturally as it does along the banks of the River Ciane, and Palazzo Bellomo dating from the 13th to the 15th century, the seat of the Regional Museum of Medieval and Modern Art. It is impossible to sum up the beauty of the isle of Ortigia and the old city of Siracusa, but there is always the sea, the large natural port which is extremely beautiful at sunset, the market and the various monuments.
