Modica

4
Modica is a city and comune of 54.456 inhabitants in the Province of Ragusa, Sicily, southern Italy. The city is situated in the Hyblaean Mountains.Modica has neolithic origins and it represents the historical capital of the area which today almost corresponds to the Province of Ragusa. Until the 19th century it was the capital of a County that exercised a so wide political, economical and cultural influence as it has been counted among the most powerful feuds of the Mezzogiorno.Today Modica is well-known for its rich repertoire of culinary specialities, especially the typical chocolate inspired by an aztec recipe, and for its historical centre. Rebuilt following the devastating earthquake of 1693, its architecture has been recognised as providing outstanding testimony to the exuberant genius and final flowering of Baroque art in Europe and, along with other towns in the Val di Noto, is part of UNESCO Heritage Sites in Italy.
Modica is in Province of Ragusa. Plan your trip to Modica and other Italy destinations using our handy Italy day trip planner .
