Syracuse

LUXURY PROPERTIES FOR SALE IN SYRACUSE, SICILY

According to Thucydides, the city of Syracuse was founded in 733 BC from a group of Corinthians led by the oikistes Archia. Disembarked on the island of Ortigia, the Greeks drove away the Sicels and founded a first urban center. The city became a pole of attraction for some of the most eminent figures in Greek history: Aeschylus, Pindar, Ibycus, Xenophon and Plato.

Under Roman domination, the city, despite being plundered by many of its riches, remained the most flourishing center of the island.

The decline of the early Middle Ages ceased with the arrival of the Arabs and the Normans. In the following centuries, the city was at the center of conflicts, with events often rolling out independently from those that affected the rest of the island. In 1536 the control of the city passed directly to King Charles V of Spain.

The historic center of the city was badly damaged by the earthquake of 1693 and the reconstruction that followed led to the baroque appearance that the city still retains today. The wars that affected Europe in the 18th century brought Sicily under the control of the Savoy, then the Austrians and finally in 1734 the Bourbons of Spain who held firm control until 1848. The People's Spring did not leave indifferent the people of Syracuse who rebelled against the Bourbon authority. The revolts were repressed but the landing of the Thousand was the definitive blow for the Bourbons in Sicily and Syracuse was delivered to Garibaldi's troops on July 28, 1860, entering the Kingdom of Italy a few months later.

The city, with its thousand-year history, still hosts monuments of various historical periods: the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Cathedral of Syracuse, the Church of San Martino, the Pantheon of Syracuse, Palazzo Borgia del Casale, the Palazzo del Vermexio and the Castello Maniace.
