eloro, sicily

 

 

Founded in the 7th Century BC, Eloro is an ancient Greek city whose ruins are located at the mouth of the River Tellaro, near Noto.

Eloro stands in a magic place: the northern side of the natural reserve of Vendicari, an enchanting spot, reign of birds and nature.

 

 

 

 

 

 

eloro

 

Eloro stood on athe top of a hill overhanging the Ionian sea and now a day one can see some ruins of a few temples, traces of city walls, columns, houses, roads and some staircases of the theatre (photo).

Visiting Eloro is a great experience, mostly because of the sea that is the perfect soundtrack of this place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Eloro, Villa del Tellaro

 

 

Not much remains of its past and perhaps its most famous monument is the Pizzuta Column (photo), a little outside of the city, near Noto marina. The meaning and exact timing of this monument is still uncertain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

villa tellaro

 

 

Close by Eloro, one can admire the Villa of Tellaro, a beautiful Roman residence probably from the 3rd – 4th century BC.  The most obvious remaining traces are the mosaics, typical of the Roman patrician villas.
