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.

The front doors to Duomo di San Giorgio are not normally opened unless an church event is happening. The front steps are great exercise as is everything in Ragusa. Watching the elderly locals walk these stairs is sight to behold...many years of practice!!!

As about all barroco churchs its a beatiful building from outside. I took pics of it at morning, sunset, at evening...from inside its not so plain and worth a visit.

elegant baroque facade and highly decorated interior. Happened to be there on the feast of St. Giorgio. This made the visit especially memorable

We were lucky enough to be there during Easter, when they open the great gates for the Procession. Brilliant sight.
