Baroque, Gothic, and Neoclassical styles grace the facades of the buildings in Ragusa Ibla. A Catalan-Gothic temple that once rested on the square was destroyed in the 1693 earthquake, but you can still see bits of it in a portal at the Cathedral of San Giorgio. Look for the 250 steps leading up to it. Down the narrow streets and in a small square, you'll find the oldest structures in the city, all with carved detail that categorizes them as Renaissance, Gothic, or even earlier.  Use our Ragusa trip planner to visit Ragusa Ibla on your trip to Ragusa, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • We had only a little time, have made us but that we the next time two nights want to spend there's so much to see there. Good mix of old and new

  • We spent 3 days walking along, admiring the panorama area of vantage points, zajadajac to lakociami of the Patisserie. Hard to Park, many cobbled streets, stairs, sometimes quite a hill to overcome, but it is worth it. Good base for a place to stay.

  • A visit or even a stay is mandatory in this beautiful corner of Italy. Recommend that you leave the car at the municipal parking lot, free of charge, and to climb the stairs that lead directly to Ibla through the Centre.

  • Such a beautiful town! The architecture is stunning, the streets are lovely and packet with restaurants and cafes selling a variety of local and international cuisine. There are beautiful churches every few blocks and hotels for almost every taste
  • Beautiful place with lots of bits to explore. Well worth a visit. There is a massive car park which sits between the old and new towns. That's the bet place to park before walking into the old town.
  • Simply gorgeous. Winding streets, sumptuous palazzo's, churches and a Duomo sat atop a sloping square. Lots of lovely restaurants, bars and little shops to browse and a pretty park to stroll around with amazing views over the surrounding hills. You'll need to be prepared to climb up and down lots of steps and slopes though so not ideal for everyone.
  • Beautiful old town - take time to wander the narrow roads & see the fascinating architecture; the gardens offer a green oasis where you can rest your tired feet & photograph the views along the valley. Visit the splendid duomo & it's museum & enjoy a fab Muscat gelato in Piazza Duomo. Good size car park just below Piazza Republica with steps leading to tourist info kiosk. You'll need comfortable shoes & strong calf muscles - but it's worth it
  • One of the best city centers in Sicily.
