a few days I stopped to work as a tourist guide to attend a seminar about a project between the province of Ragus and Malta for a workshop about Heritage trails in the minor archaeological sites of the two areas.
It was a great occasion to be half student and half tourist!
Here and in next posts the places included in the project ARCHEOTUR we studied and visited.
MEZZAGNONE -Bagno a Mare
near the little town of Santa Croce Camarina:
it has been considered the ruin of a Christian church with Latin Cross for years.
Nowadays there's no doubt,after some archaelogical excavations and investigations.
It was a mausoleo,that is a Funeral monument of the VIth century when the Gotes had just invaded Sicily before Bellisario led its conquest by the Byzantine.
Then , the building changed into an Hammam during the Arabs.
