A beautiful church situated in the city of Noto which is a UNESCO world heritage site in Sicily. The church is Sicilian baroque in style and has a beautiful architecture inside. I love the church and I spent an hour inside by just looking at those beautiful religious artwork. From the outside the church look very beautiful and stairs entrance is quiet dramatic going inside the church. Beautiful! When visiting the old town of Noto the church a must place to see.

We've visited in Sicily for 10 days and I don't remember any Church Nor any Cathedral, in Catania nor in any other city in Sicily, with such a beautiful esplanade or wide stairs in front of it.
Even better if you get in and visit its interior.
I believe it is the most interesting place to see in Notto.
I have attached several picture hoping to give you a glimpse of it.

This is beautiful, inside and out. The wide steps give a strong presence from the street. The decoration is not as ornate as some other churches in Ragusa or Modica, but still beautiful.

Great perspective from Palazzo Ducezio across the street.

It's quite stunning and impressive from the outside. The grand stairs leading up to the baroque building is quite impressive. The interior although understated compared to other cathedrals is still wonderful. It's no surprise this area of Noto achieved UNESCO status.

There are many beautiful churches to visit in Noto.
The Cathedral lies along the main road of the town and dominates it.
It has many works of art and one can find information both online and as hard copy.
Make sure you have a look at The Way of The Cross (Via Sagra), a detail which is missed by many.
Sunday morning mass is at 10.30 hrs and features the resident choir.

We visited as the sun was setting on Noto. St. Nicholas turns almost orange as the sun sets across the cathedral. The beauty in the cathedral is the baroque architecture. The inside is very simple really when compared to the detail of the outside, yet still beautiful. Noto is a beautiful little city well worth visiting if in southern Sicily, though best visited as the sun sets.

Climb the steps and be rewarded by a beautiful Baroque cathedral. Later you can stop for a meal just opposite, the Cathedral shall keep drawing your eyes to it.

This is a definite stop, climb the steps and take a look inside. Such simplicity, light and clean lines. Some churches can seem dark and heavy, this church is very beautiful!
