4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
Begun in 1744, Duomo di San Giorgio was built after an earthquake destroyed its predecessor, which had stood as the area's main place of worship since the 14th century. The construction of the facade was finished in 1775, but the dome wasn't conceived and built until 1820. Admire the Baroque interior and examine some of the remains pulled from the rubble of the original church, which have been reassembled to give an idea of its magnificence. After your visit, relax in the plaza over which the cathedral presides, or head downhill toward the Ibleo gardens.

  • Known thanks to the television series di Montalbano, the Cathedral with the square outside are a disarming beauty! Also some interesting shops in the area, especially one with a very nice gentleman, which sells handcrafted tiles egregia invoice.

  • The Baroque in its highest expression, one of the monuments to visit. I remind everyone that the afternoon visits begin at 16.30

  • The spectacular façade of the Duomo di San Giorgio is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and unique in Italy, thanks to its height due to the fact that the Bell Tower is the same façade, as San Giorgio a Modica. In addition the staircase amplifies the verticality and the feeling of infinity. The Interior is no less with the matching red and white walls of bichromatic drapes that adorn. And then the statue of St. George on horseback slaying the Dragon is the symbol of the city. Beautiful in the evening and not to be missed!
