About Domus Elena,
I am 75 years old and everyone says well taken. I was a professor of art history in high schools. I graduated in Classical Arts in University of Catania with honors in 1968. I am in love with my city of which I see the merits and defects. I know deeply Sicily, its art and its traditions. I can advise you little known places and routes but exciting, culinary curiosity and more
Domus Elena, purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Domus Elena, chose Ortigia
I knew this house as a young girl and I have always loved. Ortigia is my home, not for the monuments and museums that you can walk to it through the narrow streets that follow the greek system, to the Greek and Roman columns visible in the buildings of the 1700s, to the window without the building, and all the details that the changing light makes it look different at every time of day. And then the old 08/12 baroque processions for the Virgin Mary and from 13/12 to 21/12 when the chryselephantine statue of Saint Lucia is offered to the population. But the most particular procession is the one that takes place from 3 o'clock at dawn del29 November whose name can be translated from the Sicilian 'the walk to wake up'
What makes this Apartment unique
The living room and bedroom have vaulted ceilings high m.4,50 and at the height of the balcony from the respective path of the Crucified we see the shrine of Our Lady of the Angels on the secondary site of the Church of Santa Maria to the nuns that preserves between 'another beautiful ceramic flooring of Caltagirone del1700. The entrance is covered by a barrel vault with large windows overlooking the terrace.
