Well, it is like many baroque churches in Italia and Sicilia, so it is nice, but nothing unusual. The setting is on a hillside with streets on either side and a plaza at the base of the church where there are a few restaurants and room for kids to whack soccer balls agains glass office windows. Between church and streets... More

Stunning little place once more. One of the most quiet Duomos we have seen in Sicily and yet so magnificant. Take a walk up the stairs of St.Giorgio Cathedral and sit on the top of them... its the most beautiful view on the square and there is something that cannot be explained by words of how does it make you...

One of the most stunning cathedrals we have seen so far in Sicily! Is baroque details and elements are what leaves you speechless, on a building of this size, it looks so surreal! Unfortunately it was closed that day due to doors painting so we couldnt enter inside, but what we saw from the outside left an impression deep enough.... More

The building is beautiful but the idea of creating a compass and clock based on the sunlight through the dome is fascinating. Somehow I don't expect dragons all over a Catholic church but these are right at home.

This is the place to be surrounding by baroque architecture - and also plenty of cafe's and bars! Although Ragusa Ibla is full of churches and cathedrals the piazza is dominated by the one to view.

I waited a long time to get in, as it was closed for three hours during the long lunch pause. Pleasant enough when I finally got in, but I preferred the baroque cathedrals in Noto and Catania to this one. I found Ragusa's archaeological museum of more interest.
