Located in Ragusa Ibla, in a magnificent city where the baroque reigns, this church is a must stop on a visit to Ragusa.It was built in 1775 but the Dome was added only in 1820. It is a splendid construction particularly when viewed from the lower area of sloping Piazza Duomo; the church is at the top end with a... More

this is one baroque church by Gagliardi where you can't climb the beautiful stairs (scalinata), as there is an ironcast fence (cancellata), in itself a beauty, and they keep it locked. Why? So you have to enter from a small door on the left side. Inside we read the sign "God knows how to call on you everywhere, but He... More

The history of St. George is different than I had previously believed. Like all churches in Sicily, the interior is breathtaking and it has fome beautiful stained glass windows up high. It is a difficult walk to get there in this very hilly town. Everywhere in Ragusa is a tough walk.

Tourist galore, but an outstanding church to visit, best with tour guide other preparation to explain all the nuances of godly icons of the different periods in Sicilian history

We couldn't go inside, as it was closed. But the exterior was breathtaking and it has a commanding place at top of square. Make sure you visit this while strolling though the town. Few shops, cafes and restaurants in square around- other than that there was little shade.

The outside of the church is beautiful and as a structure it dominates the centre of the town - The inside of the church is however rather dull and non inspiring. Worth a visit for its location, and for the walk through the town to get there.

Simply a serene experience visiting the Cathedral - so stunning and peaceful - when we were there, there was a rehearsal for a wedding the day after!

We were there on a family holiday over Easter . On Easter Sunday , the cathedral is opened to the public at about 9pm , when the locals congregate to celebrate Easter with the city's patron - St George. The celebration is taken to an extreme when the statue of the saint is moved out of its shrine and is... More
