Completed in 1776, the cathedral stands impressively at the top of a tall flight of steps and was built in the baroque style as part of the reconstruction of Noto after the 1693 earthquake. The inside, unusually for cathedrals in Italy, has a consistency due...More

This baroque cathedral sits on top of a grand staircase. The cathedral was built in several stages during the 18th century. It is beautiful inside and outside. Worth a visit.

St. Nicholas Cathedral -- stunning, captivating, amazing!!! What an unbelievable work of Sicilian Baroque architecture! A must if you're in the area. We spent a glorious afternoon here, lots of locals, very friendly people. Parking is a little tricky, but it's worth the effort!

Other than being amazed, this place is more peaceful, clean and neat than any places in the island we ever visited. More over, locals here are accommodating, too. I would definitely recommend to include this on your itinerary.
