This is a beautiful Baroque church with an extra twist. Near the altar is a fully functional solar calendar in which the noon sun illuminates the floor. There is a proper double lobe allowing for the North south movement of the sun and that it is a bit earlier than noon at some times of the year and later in other times. Very unexpected to see this combination of Astronomy and religion.

Beautiful, but suggest visiting AFTER visiting and experiencing Modica Chocolate. Going up those stairs will counter any weight gain

The church sits high on a steep hillside in Ragusa approached by many steps. The baroque design, outside and in, is elegant The statue of San Giorgio on horseback is impressive. It is used as the centrepiece of a procession in a recent episode of Inspector Montalbano, as are the church and steps.

While on our guided tour we stopped at Modica and we walked the slopes to the start of the 200 steps to the top to see this wonderful building and architectural experience is to behold, it’s also were Salvo meets Livia from the bus or not in some cases, just beautiful views of the town below, then a slow walk back down for another coffee. Highly recommend.

I will not repeat in detail all the reasons you should visit this wonderful church, because the impressive flights of steps needed to be traversed to reach it, the lovely formal gardens, the sundial in mosaics across the transept ,the murals of the legend of St. George and the impressive baroque ceilings have all been described by others.
But more to say that its not that far to get here from Chiesa di San Pietro, as you take the lane to the right when tou leave that church and left at the end onto Via Giuseppi Garibaldi which takes you all the way to the first flight of impressive steps up to this church.
Then the small Caffè Duomo just above Chiesa di San Giorgio, with its couple of outside tables on a little terrace is well recommended stop to take in a coffee and pastry before moving on.
And personally I cannot recommend enough to move on higher through Modica Alta by leaving the church via the back steps onto Corso Regina Margherita which climbs to arrive at the main square of Chiesa di San Giovanni, which is another superb church and the views of Modica to be had from the Belvedere Pizzo round the corner are truly stunning.

The Chiesa di San Giorgio is truly magnificent perched on top of sweeping stairs it has fantastic views of Modica.
The Boroque facade is simply stunning and the sundial is facinating.
Don't miss it when in Modica.

This church features as the 'funeral' church in several episodes of Montalbano and you can see why. It is a beautiful and quite spectacular exterior, with a grand sweep of stairs up to it. It is in Modica Alta, so there is a climb, but very worth while.

Modica is justly renowned for its baroque architecture and San Giorgio is the jewel in its crown. A wonderful setting too, so there is no reason not to visit!

Pay to go up to the dome - about 2 euro each. The views are worth it and gives you a good sense of the town.
