Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto

Baroque style and chocolate match perfectly together and make the irresistible appeal of Modica, a charming city that is 15 km far from Ragusa and that is divided in two expanses: Modica Alta (upper Modica) and Modica Bassa (southern Modica). This town, settle down between two valleys and on the Pizzo’s hill, is a harmony of churches, palaces and buildings of the eighteenth century (all built according to the late baroque style) overlooking narrow, tiny streets, squares, and stage-stairways. The most extraordinary example is the Saint George’s Cathedral, that belongs to the properties patronized from the Unesco, that faces a stairway of 160 steps. Is just some metres far the Polara Palace (XVIII century) that overlooks Modica Bassa, characterised by the Saint Peter’s Cathedral that embellished by its stairway with the statues of the twelve Apostles. But Modica is also famous thanks to its chocolate that has been made since the eighteenth century by using a cold-working. When this chocolate is amalgamated with vanilla, cinnamon or hot pepper, it is a irresistible temptation. The city has a monumental-looking, because of the past colonizations of Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans, but it has also, at the same time, a lively heart that is given by the close Marina Di Modica, considered a paradise from the people who love surfing and to do windsurf. If during the day-time long, gilt beaches invite to a complete rest, when the sun goes down a lot of pubs, discos, restaurants and nightly haunts invite to a complete fun to enjoy during the hot summer evenings. In the surroundings there are also the locations where the famous Commissario Montalbano (a character created by the Sicilian writer Andrea Camilleri) is shot, like Pozzallo, a town renowned thanks to its sandy beaches, and Sampieri, a characteristic, old fishermen village.
