BAROQUE CITY

Modica

Modica, located in the southern area of the Iblei Mountains, is certainly one of the most picturesque Sicilian cities.
Always a popular tourist destination, it attracts tourists from all over the world, attracted by the ancient cultural tradition of the city, its narrow streets, noble palaces, beautiful baroque churches and, why not, also by the rich culinary and gastronomic tradition.

Modica

Ragusa

Although excluded from the common tourist routes, Ragusa is an interesting surprise, both for its geographical position and for the richness of its artistic heritage. It is placed on a limestone rock between two valleys: the San Leonardo quarry and the Santa Domenica quarry. The city is divided into two distinct nuclei, Ragusa Inferiore (the ancient lbla) and Ragusa Superiore, separated by the “Valle dei Ponti”, a deep ravine crossed by four bridges, of which we remember the nineteenth-century Capuchin.

Ragusa - Modica

Ispica

Ispica is a pretty town of about 14,000 inhabitants located in the easternmost limit of the province, almost on the border with the province of Syracuse.
The city is about 6 km from the sea. The urban center, rebuilt in this place after the disastrous earthquake of 1693, is among the most functional and modern of the province and is characterized by beautiful buildings, beautiful churches and wide and straight streets. The name of the city was when the old name of Spaccaforno was abolished.

Pozzallo

Pozzallo is the only seaside municipality in the province of Ragusa;lying on the seashore with magnificent beaches very popular.
It began to be important only in the fourteenth century as the outlet to the sea of the county of Modica, when the Chiaramonte built a Loader around which the first inhabited districts of the country have arisen, with narrow streets, characteristic of the Mediterranean centers.

Scicli

Scicli is an elegant town located in a wide valley between the rocky hills, at the confluence of three valleys: that of S. Bartolomeo, that of S. Maria La Nova and the fiumara of Modica.
The eighteenth-century appearance that characterizes the city, is a consequence of the unfortunate earthquake of 1693, which upset a large part of Sicily.

Noto

In a region where olive and almond trees abound, Noto is a small baroque jewel perched on a plateau overlooking the Asinaro valley, covered with citrus.
Its beauty, so harmonious as to be a fiction, the scene of a theater, comes from a tragic fact: the earthquake of 1693, which in this part of Sicily brought death destruction, but gave impetus to the reconstruction.
