“Baroque church”

Chiesa di San Giorgio
Ranked #1 of 47 things to do in Modica
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 April 2013

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.

Despite the hundreds of steps this church was worth the climb. A fabulous Mother Church for Modica. Baroque at its beautiful best. The church was being decorated for a wedding later that day. Lace streamers and red roses marked the aisles. We lit a candle for my dad who was also a George.
