    If you have already done an overdose of Sicilian Baroque, Santa Maria di Gesu is the place to go. The Church and the cloister are 2 real gems and one of the rare examples of flamboyant Gothic in Sicily. Andrew guided us to discover this peaceful place and steeped in history with sympathy and skill. Not to be missed if you are in the area of Modica! Highly recommended!

    When you arrive in Modica don't stop to visit only the famous Church of San Giorgio. Get in the car until the Church convent of Saint Mary of Jesus and did not regret it. An interesting story and a structure that has withstood devastating earthquakes. Very nice the cloister. We were lucky enough to be led by a passionate young trained and who explained the historical stratification and the meaning of many symbols scattered throughout the route. Highly recommended even by those who, like us, are in Sicily to discover its treasures.

    worth a visit for both the Church and the spectacular cloister. We drove into continuing uphill after the Cathedral.

  • Entry is 3 euro per adult but comes with informative tour which is also provided in English. Finished restoration which started in 1991 in 2010. Definitely worth seeing!
  • Not open when I arrived. The location is in local residential area, and out of most tourist attractions area.
  • Beautiful site and with only three euros we were guided by a passionate guide that explained all the details will remain one of my best memories of travel

  • Great site dating back to 400. A must visit for the mixture of styles and for the absolute beauty in all its parts: the former Church, chapels and especially the cloister. A real gem!
