• Modica

Modica is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque cities in the province of Ragusa and probably in all of Sicily.

It is a treasure trove of unparalleled architectural beauty, and the city has been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
The purely medieval architecture is flanked by exquisite baroque buildings and charming noble palaces, which nods to the ancient richness of Modica.

 
 

The old part of the city is characterized by houses leaning against each other, often obtained by taking advantage of the natural cavities of the cliff rocks. The whole center of Modica is full of architectural beauty and deserves a long and slow walk to enjoy it all the way.
