Sicily 13th and Last: Syracuse–A Pastry Shop, The Church of Santa Lucia (Caravaggio), and our slightly mad Tour Guide

     Sicily has excellent pastry shops, and below is one in Syracuse, the last Sicilian city we visited. That same day we visited The Church of Saint Lucy in Syracuse’s Piazza Duomo, where I remember viewing a painting that was clearly NOT100_0734100_0732 the famous baroque one we hoped to find there, Caravaggio’s The Burial of Saint Lucy. We knew it was not Caravaggio’s because it lacked the exciting, unconventionally humanized style of his religious paintings. Our tour ended with a goodbye yellow flower from our fun loving tour guide that was meant as a Sicilian symbol of that special day. Sadly, I forget what it was!100_0726100_0706
