Ragusa, located in the southeast side of Sicily, is a wonderful Baroque town belonging to the UNESCO Heritage, together with the other cities forming part of “Val di Noto”. After the earthquake of 1693, which destroyed the city along with its neighbors Modica, Noto, Scicli and Catania, it was rebuilt in two parts: Ragusa Superiore (Upper Ragusa, the modern town) and Ragusa Ibla, rebuilt on the ruins of the old town. Constructed on a spur, Ibla is a very charming town. The city centre is a pedestrian zone and characterized by its palaces and churches in Baroque style. Eighteen of its buildings are protected by UNESCO patronage. The focal point of the town is the Cathedral (St. George Dome). Among the numerous, marvelous highlights, here we just mention the Hyblean Gardens, that offer a breathtaking view of the city, and the Church St. Mary of the Stair. We can certainly affirm that Ragusa is one of the most fascinating towns in Sicily.
