this boutique charming hotel is situated in the center of Modica,we just parked the car and walked to see the awesomet churches and the baroque palaces of the city.Next door there is the famous antica cioccolateria Bonaiuto where we bought the delicious Modican chocolate.
The breakfast was served with tipical modican products like chocolate,granita, almond sweets,and of course the continental regular breakfast.
The spa in the caves is awesome, the atmosphere is really relaxing like the massages we had.
The whole baroque palace of the hotel is an importnat example of Sicilian baroque,outside and inside,where the furniture is from 18th century,the lamps are in coloured cristal,and the floors painted by hand.
This hotel was an unique experience and made our vacation really unforgettable.
