The Residence Alla Giudecca on the island of Ortigia,
Siracusa, is unique and breathtaking and offers guests
a historical experience unlike any other accommodation.
If you’re coming to Italy for history, a finer
place to stay you will not find. This stunning medieval
building, maintaining its ancient glory in stone walls
and vaulted ceilings unchanged throughout the centuries,
contains the original Hebrew baths used for the ritual
of purification dating back to the Byzantine period
of the Roman Empire.
The Byzantine period began in the early 4th century
AD when the beginning of the transition of the Roman
Empire to Christianity was afoot. This spellbinding
place still echoes with the sounds of the ancient Roman
Empire. Tours are available in English and Italian.
The property also contains the entire ruins of a deconsecrated
church where today special celebrations take place in
surroundings that for all the world seem like 1000 years
