Baroque style church in the centre of town. Very impressive with the statues on either side of the stairs leading to the entry. The town of Modica has many magnificent buildings

Parking at a premium, but church is as impressive inside as out. View the apostles outside and the beautiful designed floor inside. Very well impressed and well preserved. Also view from above city from road.
