There is no way you will miss the Chiesa during your stay in Modica - it dominates the main road! Take your time and have a look around (though be respectful as masses are still held here daily). Have your lunch on the (many!) steps and keep your eye out for any pretty weddings happening there! Be friendly and proactive... More

A wonderful place, well worth the visit for its interior and exterior grandeur. It sits as if in the centre of a town that fans out along the valley and up the hillsides.

Since this church is at the bottom of the town it requires the least effort to visit and it is a fine example of baroque architecture with a grand if somewhat austere interior compared to others.

Chiesa San Pietro is at the heart of Modica, everything fans out around it. The stairs and the statues are beautiful, a must see both during the day and at night.

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
