The Duomo di San Giorgio in Ragusa was built in the 18th century in the late baroque Sicilian style, following the historic earthquake of 1693.
We’ll visit Ragusa, one of the UNESCO towns that is part of the Sicilian Late Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto, on Day 2 of our Sept. 2018 Stirring Sicily food and wine tour.

I always think how fancy and maybe overdone Baroque is, but then I see something like this Duomo and love it all over again. Such workmanship and beauty!
You are right! The Late Sicilian Baroque is sparse and elegant. This church is a classic example of that.
