Duomo San Giorgio, Ragusa

4.6
#2 of 44 in Things to do in Ragusa
Begun in 1744, Duomo 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.

    Bella the façade (unfortunately the Church was closed on 18 August). It is nice to see it coming from the center of Ibla given the dominant position.

    Big disappointment coming day 14 August in Ibla and find the Chiesa del Duomo shut, especially in the evening when the church celebrates the assumption of Mary.

    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.

    One of the best examples of Barocco style in Sicily, symbol of the city.
