Duomo San Giorgio, Ragusa

4.7
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.

  • Baroque Catholic church, unique in the hill in Ragusa. Rebuilt after an earthquake, now it's very big, very bright with lot of light due to the only dome over some which allows light coming through
