Saint Lucia (A Buggata in Syracuse) is the second district and of what is considered the second historic district of Syracuse historically defined as Borgata.
The neighborhood was built in the second half of the nineteenth century when the expansion of urban development of the city to the north began. The name of the district derives from the formation of houses then inhabited by the emerging bourgeoisie who followed a chessboard pattern.
The main monument of the district is the Church of Santa Lucia al Sepolcro outside the walls, in the homonymous square where the legend tells of the martyrdom of Saint Lucia (the second denomination of the district is explained), for this reason December 13 of each year it becomes the epicenter of the Luciani celebrations, at the height of the long procession from the Duomo. The Simulacrum of the Patron Saint remains there for a week until the date of December 20, the eighth. Another important structure to mention is the Stadio Nicola De Simone. The location of the house is strategic to visit the Archaeological Park of Neapolis, the Paolo Orsi Archaeological Museum, the Church of S. Giovanni with its Catacombs, the latomia of the Capuchins. The historic center of the island of Ortigia is a 15 minute walk from the house.
