Province of Siracusa, Sicily, Italy
Situated along the eastern coast of Sicily, it was founded by Frederick II as a strategic port.
It was originally on a peninsula, then in 1607 the isthmus was cut so as to make it into an island, which is now linked by two bridges to the mainland in a bay south of the Santa Croce Cape. It is today the second Italian mercantile port.
