San Giorgio and its immediate surroundings are stunningly beautiful. The Baroque architecture and warm, Sicilian stone are a wonderful mix. Take a walk up or down the steps immediately below the church for the most dramatic impact.

The church stands tall above the city of Modica and you can get a view from afar and up close. Modica is part of the UNESCO and has many hidden treasures; San Giorgio is not hidden!

This is one you should see. The Cathedral of San Giorgio in Modica was completely rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake destroyed it - and of course everything in the town me those around it. This Cathedral is magnificent and you can assume there was a considerable collective undertaking, as the high level of architectural and artistic achievement attests.
