Note in antiquity as “Ibla”, the Val di Noto is located in the Southeast of Sicily. It was been inserted between the UNESCO sites for its splendid late Baroque towns, including Caltagirone, Militello Val di Catania, Catania, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo, Ragusa and Scicli. Ragusa is characterized by two different city centers and is rich in Baroque architecture both religious and civil, as the Church of St. John the Baptist, the Church of San Giorgio, the Santa Maria dei Miracoli Church, the Chancellery Palace, the Palace Bertini and the Palace Cosentini. Palazzolo is the medieval center, around which the city was rebuilt after the earthquake. In Modica, not to be missed are the Cathedral of San Giorgio and the Church of St. Peter, the ‘Chatedral’ of the lower city. While in Militello in Val di Catania between the main buildings are the churches of St. Nicholas and of Santa Maria della Stella. Scicli is rich in churches and patrician villas that are of great artistic and architectural value. Caltagirone stands out for its rich architecture and the beauty of its facades as is evident in the Church of Santa Maria del Monte, of St James the Apostle and in the palaces as the Court Capitanale and the Civic Museum. On two levels is also the city of Noto that offers a spectacular set of buildings and baroque streets, the palaces of the nobility, as Ducezio Palace. Finally, Catania, an outstanding late baroque gem with the central Piazza del Duomo, home to the Palace of the Elephants and the Amenano Fountain.
