Great place to see, visit, have a coffee, or gelato at the Piazza Duomo as you admire this beautiful 18th Century Cathedral for this lovely city. Would highly recommend the visit and just take a moment to admire this Unesco World Heritage site

Most buildings date post 1693 when an earthquake devastated the town. The Duomo is an example though there is an old doorway with stone carving preserved on the outside of the new building. There is a sanctified atmosphere and it is still very much a church in use. From the Duomo there is a good view of the piazza leading... More

Great approach from the square. Big frontage and lots of steps. Impressive inside. Museum attached but not visited.

I do like the exterior and the position over an imposing flight of steps, of all the major baroque churches in Val di Noto, but I find the interior too rich, overripe, tiring. But in this church I was struck by the statue of a seated Christ which I found quite unsettling and painfully beautiful.

Ragusa is a top tourist destination, and the Duomo di San Giorgio is probably the most recognized landmark in Ragusa Ibla, but it is just average in terms of really stunning interiors. The exterior is impressive and formidable given all the stairs to get there, but inside was actually disappointing compared to the churches in Scicli, just a few miles... More

The church was commission in 1738 after the original church, which was situated near where the public gardens are today, was damaged. It took a good 81 years to complete and is one of the architectural treasures not only of Ragusa but also of Sicily.

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

It was only a short stop on the way to Agrigento. Coz is so fantastic Town, completely rebuilt after the earthquake and is divided into two parts. At the top of the hill. The impressive baroque buildings and churches. It is nice uphill walk in to the centre.

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...
