Duomo di San Giorgio, Ragusa

(4.6/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • The hotel is really very nice. L side entrance, however, should be more prevalent for tourists who find the large main gate closed.

  • Watched from the base extends majestic and elegant this Baroque masterpiece where the local limestone has been carefully modeled. Wandering through the streets you can see the dome overlooking the duomo.

  • During a holiday weekend in the province of Ragusa I was able to enter at the fourth attempt. Means that, strangely, I truly want. While not a lover of Baroque, it cannot be totally captured by the beauty of this church, although as is often the case in the buildings facade in style, the Visual impact is far superior to its interior. To ruin everything: this church is closed 22 hours out of 24, and when you enter it looks like they're doing you a favor. Inconceivable.

  • 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.
  • One of the best examples of Barocco style in Sicily, symbol of the city.
  • Wonderful church, although could be a bit more lit up considering the beautiful paintings and decor inside.
