Of all the churches we visited in Noto, the two of us found the interior of this one the most pleasing!
The church, dedicated to Saint Clare of Assisi was completed in 1758. We entered it through a side entrance because the original portal became unusable after a renovation of the main street when the street level was lowered.
The church's nave is elliptical, with two larger and three smaller segments on each side of the nave, plus the segments of the main altar and the original entrance. The larger side segments have six beautifully decorated side altars. The walls have nice baroque decorations with stucco and cherubs.

We toured this church as part of a walking tour. The floor plan is unique and the entrance is a reflection of the urban changes that happened in Noto over time.

The baroque inside decor is unique as are the jealousy covered windows to protect the nuns from public view. These are inherited from the islamic tradition.

Beautiful compact church, unusually shaped inside. The 2 Euros for the choir and tower access is the main attraction - get the classic view of the cathedral and the square in front, with plenty of room to walk on the top of the tower. You can also see where the nuns used to sing down to the church.

This church is also less ornate than some of the others in the area. Not as grand as St Nicholas Cathedral, but still important.

Why? because unfortunately, on the many reviews I had read here and on other sites, most of the pictures are actually those of Notto's Cathedral with its wide facade and many stairs, or of Chiesa di San Domenico with the adjoining garden and Fontana d'Ercole.
So, yes, this Church is beautiful, much more inside with its white baroque style, than outside, but again don't expect too much of it as it is somehow less beautiful then Notto's cathedral.

A magnificent sight upon arrival, but but a 2€ ticket and climb the staircase upon staircase for incredible views across the place and view the gorgeous architecture.

Even if one has seen umpteen baroque churches this is worth going into because one can walk up to the top ( for the modest amount of €2) where there is an outside terrace with a spectacular view over all of Noto. On the way up one can see the gratings behind which the nuns used to sit and the holes in the floor and ceiling through which the ropes were led for bell ringing.

This church is more interesting than it seems and is one of 40 or more churches in Noto. It is free to visit although there is a €2 fee to go up to the roof terrace. It is baroque but not overdone and is a small intimate place. The trip to the roof is interesting as you have views of the nave through a massive wooden grill where presumably the nuns prayed. At the top, which isn’t very high, there is a good 360 panoramic view of Noto.

Like most churches in Sicily, the interiors are rather plain with the exception of the alter area. this church was the same. Since there was nothing special about it and we were going to be visiting many other churches, we only spent a few minutes viewing it.
