This is one of the easiest churches in Modica to get to. Still it is worth visiting and there are amazing views back to the other side of Modica.

Being there for a friend wedding, the building exterior is as amazing as its interior. The baroque design dated back to decades ago, reminds us of the past and so many historical moments it has gone through. If you are in modica you should visit this sacred place for its beauty.

When you first arrive in Modica, you probably will be strolling on Corso Umberto, the moment you see this church you will be at awe at her beauty and grandeur.

Chiesa di San Pietro is located in the heart of Modica Bassa ('Lower Modica') on the main Corso Umberto I. The majority of the church dates from a few years after the earthquake, in 1697 although one of the internal chapels survived the earthquake and is dated from 1620. As others have said the exterior could do with a decent... More

This is fantastic from the outside with all the statues of the 12 apostles framing the steps up to it. It's on the main drag in Modica Bassa so if you're there and it's open [closed in the afternoon] it's worth a look inside too.

A beautiful church which should not be missed. So much history and wonderful artworks. If you are very lucky the old man mentioned by Ivo will be there. He was not put off by my lack of Italian. He got a huge amount across to myself and my family. He lives on the hill opposite and this is obviously his... More

This church is worth visiting, but it desperately needs to have the outside cleaned up and restored. It is somewhat pathetic compared to some of the other churches and cathedrals we saw in Sicily. But inside, it's interesting and worthy of a visit.

This Duomo in Modica is less known, but it has wonderful interior, reconstructed with help of sponsor. In the church is one older man, speaking only Italian (but you can understand him, if you want), who explain with big enthusiasm everything you see there. Small obolus for it makes him very happy.
