Perhaps as interesting as Siracusa but for different reasons. This baroquely built city has a currency to it after dark that makes it an oasis for the region. The architecture is stunning and there are a few very decent restaurants and cafes to rest and...More

Noto was a lot less crowded than I had feared. Being such a fantastic monument to the baroque style, I was expecting to find Noto busy and to have to queue for everything, this was not the case, sure, there were plenty of people there...More

This is an unexpected and delightful attraction in this honey-coloured Baroque town. Stand with your back to the Tourist Office and across the road you will see the sign for this museum of cribs, down a side street. All the cribs and figures are handmade...More

Noto deserves a whole afternoon to visit all the churches. This is one of the towns destroyed by the earthquake in 1693.

Simply awesome architecture - so many churches and palaces in such a small area, it is almost over whelming.

These towns in southeast Sicily are amazing. They were all destroyed in a large earthquake in the 1600's, and were all rebuilt in the boroque style over then next several decades. They have been named, as a group, as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and make...More
