Duomo di San Giorgio, Ragusa

#2 of 44 in Things to do in Ragusa
Architectural Building Religious Site
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.

  • Very well presented church, and great example of the baroque style. Entrance is up the stairs on the left as you look at the front.
  • post-earthquake baroque church. extremely impressive inside and outside. it is the background of some scenes of Commissario Montalbano
  • Walking up from Giardino Ibleo this Duomo stands tall and impressive.
  • Absolutely stunning. The interior is quite interesting :)
  • One of the best examples of Barocco style in Sicily, symbol of the city.
