Neapolis Archaeological Park
Inside the Neapolis Archaeological Park(from the greek “new city”), there are most of the classical monuments of the Greek and Roman Siracusa. It was built using the funds of the Fund for the South, between the 1952 and the 1955, with the aim of gathering inside a unique area all the monuments of the ancient neighborhood. Just in the entrance of the park there is the Basilica of St. Nicolò Cordari (eleventh century AD), which now houses a tourist office. The church was built on a Roman pool of a rectangular shape, visible only from the outside. In Roman era it was just used as a water tank, then it turned into a hypogeic church, it has some grotto, and in one of them it was once possible to see the paintings, no longer distinguishable. In all probability they were the tombs of Christian martyrs. In the Norman period, the church was abandoned and the hypogean basilica was built above it.
