About the neighbourhood
Ortygia is a little island and it is the historical centre of the city of Syracuse. The island, also known as Città Vecchia (Old City), contains many historical landmarks. The name originates from the Ancient Greek ortyx (?????) which means 'Quail'.

The Homeric Hymn to Delian Apollo has it that the goddess Leto stopped at Ortygia to give birth to Artemis, Artemis then helped Leto across the sea to the island of Delos, where Leto gave birth to Apollo. Ortygia was an old name of Delos. It was also said that Asteria, the sister of Leto metamorphosed into a quail (Ortux), threw herself into the sea, and was metamorphosed into the island Ortygia.

Ortigia Subdistricts are: Graziella, Bottari, Mastrarua, Spirduta, Maestranza, Duomo, Giudecca, Turba, Castello Maniace.
