In classical times, Syracuse was a great city, never conquered, the capital of Siciliy, equal in population and culture to Athens, the intellectual heart of the West. In Roman and Byzantine times, she was a provincial centre governing a quarter of the island. But Syracuse was destroyed by the Arabs and eclipsed by Palermo, and she has never recovered.
