Modica Baroque city of the Val di Noto, is located in the south east of Sicily and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Cities. The historic center of the city, entirely rebuilt following the 1693 earthquake, is divided into two large districts: Modica Alta and Modica Bassa. Today walking through the streets of Modica means taking a path steeped in history between late Baroque palaces, churches with majestic steps and great masterpieces.

Among the masterpieces you can admire the Cathedral of San Giorgio, the most imposing and majestic church in the city, often indicated as a symbol of Sicilian Baroque and Palazzo Grimaldi, which represents the most beautiful example of a neo-Renaissance style building among those overlooking the historic center.
