Not far from the Giardini Ibleo, this is all that remains of the Church of San Giorgio that was destroyed in the C17th earthquake but it is certainly worth going to have a look. Originally built in C14th probably by the notable Chiaramonte family it is constructed in the Catalan Gothic style. In the lunette you can see St George slaying the dragon and above that the House of Aragon coat of arms.

In Ragusa Ibla next to the 'Villa' (as the Sicilians call their public gardens) you'll find the remains of the ancient church of San Giorgio to not confuse with the Duomo in the main piazza in Ibla. It was built around the XII century and is a beautifull example of Gotic-Catalan style.
Of the old church is left only the front wall with it's beautiful Portal. Built with blocks of soft lime stone, of a soft pink colour, the Portal has carvings representing the knight fighting the dragon (just above the door), the Ragusan eagle and flowers, leaves, 7 columns and arches as ornaments. The church was very badly damaged during an earthquake in 1693 and most of the stones of the old church were used to build the new Duomo of San Giorgio but fortunately the portal was spared and if you are in Ragusa Ibla it's definitely worth a stop to admire this great little gem!

This was the only thing survived to the big earthquake. It is very simple but it keeps the history untouched.

The only architectural element that survived the earthquake of 1693. It give a good idea of what the medieval town must have been.

While this may be the only remaining portion of the San Giorgio church, it is still amazing to see. To think that this portal from the 1100's has survived two earthquakes and a multitude of other disasters, it feels like a privilege for us to still be able to view and marvel. It won't take you long to see it but you should definitely look for it near the garden.

Bumped into this porta without realising it was an important portale san Giorgio. Looked at the tourst office recomendations and realised we did spot it near the garden. Beautiful. It was low season so it was very quiet..calm. Recommend to take a look if you are near the garden.

The worn figures of St George and the dragon are amazing considering all they have survived. Look carefully at the detail the masons have gone into.

Bus not allowed into Ragusa and we walked up hill from the get off point and pasted this Item on the way into the plaza. Behind a fence to protect it from the passers by.

Found it interesting but not exciting

One of the historic relics in Ragusa Ibla, a survivor of earthquakes, wars and the ravages of the passing years. Beautiful in its proportions.
