  • Discovered in 1987 by the scholar modicano Duccio Bader in a cave used as a local evacuation orders and acquired in 1992 by the Center for studies on the County of Modica, the cave Church of Saint Nicholas is considered the oldest church in Modica. Consisting of one room of about 45 sqm. has an apse completely covered in icons in the Byzantine style, where a central location dominates the Christ pantocrator inside a large almond and surrounded by angels. Excavations have also uncovered, at floor level, a series of tombs Terragni, still largely unexplored. The Rock Church is the most eloquent and best preserved example of an architecture of Byzantine origin who left important traces not only hyblean area but, more widely, throughout the island.

  • It is a Byzantine cave Church is unique, because above it there is a House. It was discovered recently (1987) and randomly by some children who had lost the ball. In the price of the ticket costs € 2.50 includes a brief explanation.
