Ragusa and Modica: a journey through the UNESCO heritage
Modica and Ragusa Ibla
The aroma of chocolate will guide you on this journey in the southeast of Sicily, where archaeological sites are married to charming baroque cities.
We will move in the morning to Modica. Known worldwide for its distinctive chocolate and for being the birthplace of Salvatore Quasimodo, Nobel prize for literature, the city of Modica rises between two caves, on the riverbed of a watercourse buried in the last century.
Among the main attractions we will see the Saint Georges’s Church, Saint Peter’s Church, Mary Of Bethlehem’s Church and a small cave church which houses some Byzantine frescos.
We won't miss the chance of stopping by for some chocolate tasting and we will also try the "mpanatigghie" which consist of thin dough raviolo filled with cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg and minced pork or beef.
The second stop of the day will be Ragusa Ibla. The city will be revealed to us during the visit of the beautiful iblei gardens, the San Giorgio portal, St. Joseph's Church, Piazza Pola and the Cathedral, considered one of the most beautiful religious structures in Sicily.
