A bit of a workout to get up to this church but a lovely building and a tremendous view. Well worth the climb.
We went to a wedding at this beautiful Baroque church and loved it; the interior was more ornate than you would expect to see in an English cathedral but it fitted the Sicilian countryside beautifully. The situation of the cathedral, at the top of the town, is breathtaking too.
The view from out side the church is very nice and the church itself is too. There are alot of interesting things to see inside the church.
After a loooong flight of stairs, rewarded with a nice facade of baroque church. Was late, and church was closed.
San Giorgio and its immediate surroundings are stunningly beautiful. The Baroque architecture and warm, Sicilian stone are a wonderful mix. Take a walk up or down the steps immediately below the church for the most dramatic impact.
The church stands tall above the city of Modica and you can get a view from afar and up close. Modica is part of the UNESCO and has many hidden treasures; San Giorgio is not hidden!
This is one you should see. The Cathedral of San Giorgio in Modica was completely rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake destroyed it - and of course everything in the town me those around it. This Cathedral is magnificent and you can assume there was a considerable collective undertaking, as the high level of architectural and artistic achievement attests.
