The name Ortigia comes from the small island on the edge of the ancient walled city of Syracuse, on the south-eastern coast of Sicily. The streets of Ortigia are collapsed baroque facades of great splendor overlooking 3 sides of the sea. The Piazza del Duomo is considered one of the most beautiful in Italy. Located in the south-east of Sicily, this part of the island is known as "Eastern Sicily" because of its proximity to Africa and its almost tropical climate. In the rich volcanic soil of Etna, the highest volcano in Europe, there are hundreds of groves of orange and lemon trees, the only place where blood oranges grow, as well as grapefruits, almonds, pistachios. , saffron, vines, olives and cacti.
