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 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.

The church St Peidro was a lovely quiet space to sit and think after climbing a short set of steps, at the same time I could hear young people sitting on the steps outside talking and laughing like young people anywhere.

Keep in mind that in Modica, there are hundreds of churches and the top one is St. Giorgio, and running a close second is St. Pietro. Both a must visit.

Initially built in the 14th century and then rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake. Whereas San Giorgio Cathedral was for the Nobles the San Pietro was for the common man. It is slightly smaller, but no less beautiful. San Pietro is the main church in Modica Bassa, the "lower" part of the town, is equal in importance to Cathedral of St.George,... More

Brilliant, on a smaller scale to St Peter's in Rome, well patronized by the locals and a gorgeous landmark
