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...More

This church is beautifully decorated and is worth taking the time to explore. The town itself is full of baroque architecture and one could spend a few hours exploring the town as well as a number of its churches. This church also allows a climb...More
