Another small town, Ortigia. As we walk through the streets, there are fishing nets and a fake fish hung advertising a business.
I was tyring to get a shot of the Corinthian columns, topped with acanthus leaves.
Inside the main church.
Here is good shot. In the foreground are the Roman arches that were added to the temple when it was converted to a Roman temple. In the background are the original Greek columns from the Temple of Apollo, that were subsumed into the walls. The metal gates date only to the 1800's and are a recent addition.
The side nave with an old wooden crucifix from the Byzantine era.
As Kimberly likes to say: "Jesus Christ on a cross!"
The entrance to a side church containing a famous Caravaggio.
A truly Italian meal of pizza and calzone, eaten outside on a lovely piazza with the accordion playing in the background.
And a little friend to share our Parma ham from the calzone. All in all, a perfect last lunch before we left.
