Curiosity about Syracuse

The cave known as the "Ear of Dionysius," located in the Archaeological Park Neapolis, owes its name to its conformation resembling a human ear. According to legend, the tyrant Dionysius I of Syracuse used it as a prison, taking advantage of the extraordinary acoustics of the cave, which even allowed whispers of prisoners to be heard.
