great setting

The church is a fine example of Baroque. The piazza it faces is far more impressive than the church itself, especially tanek from the end far away from the duomo. a must see.

Worth seeing as it is an oasis in a very sunny split level piazza. Lovely and atmospheric. We were the only visitors and its coolness and darkness made it seem idyllic.

Great example of Baroque in Sicily. The Duomo dominated the view of the town, his impotent staircases are perfect as a standpoint for a panoramic picture.

Nice town. Very steep streets and lots of steps. It was so hot when we were there we just had a cold drink and climbed back up to the car for the air con!

If you watch "Inspector Montalbano" you will recognise this church from the opening titles and various episodes. Interesting history and lovely Baroque architecture.

Best viewed from the bottom of the sloping piazza so you can see the whole wrought iron staircase leading up to the front of the church, even more striking at night when the glass dome glows blue.

The grandest building in Ragusa Ibla is its cathedral, the Duomo di San Giorgio, begun in 1738 and designed by the architect Rosario Gagliardi. It’s located in the heart of the narrow streets of the old town in front of the welcoming Piazza Duomo and contains some of the best and most prized artworks to be found in the Baroque... More

I loved the duomo. I am not religious but respectfully attended a service there as I did not want to be a tourist walking at looking at the locals. I was warmly welcomed. The church is lovely.

The duomo and its museum are not to be missed in Ragusa. I found the votive wood statue of San Giorgio particularly interesting.

It is worth visiting if only for the shiny statue of St George on his horse who was being lovingly dusted and polished when we visited (it was at the time of the festival).
