Just beautiful

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).

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.
