The Cathedral and Noto are just an architectural wonder.

A gem that inspires you to want to learn more.

Certainly one of the highlights of such a beautiful city. The stained glass is so rich in colours and draws you in. Really loved the art in the inner part of the dome

Great exterior and magnificent interior. Plenty of stained glass windows,sculptures and paintings to inspire every visitor. Allow 2 to 3 hours to explore the Cathedral as rthere is so much to take in

Beautiful building on the outside. Very simple inside. Lots of steps up to it. Most churches close from 1 until 3

It's a grand cathedral with relatively modest interior decorations amounting to a few ceiling and apse frescoes.

There are many churches in Sicily. In fact there are many in Noto. This is a very nice one, though not in the top bracket. Its Baroque ,like the whole of the centre of the town so worth a quick call
