“The other Church”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Keep in mind that in Modica, there are hundreds of churches and the top one is St. Giorgio, and running a close second is St. Pietro. Both a must visit.

“Pure Sicilian Baroque”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

Initially built in the 14th century and then rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake. Whereas San Giorgio Cathedral was for the Nobles the San Pietro was for the common man. It is slightly smaller, but no less beautiful. San Pietro is the main church in Modica Bassa, the "lower" part of the town, is equal in importance to Cathedral of St.George, and is pure Sicilian Baroque.

Brilliant, on a smaller scale to St Peter's in Rome, well patronized by the locals and a gorgeous landmark
