The church and the piazza it sits one are a stunning example of Sicilian Baroque. We got to this town by accident, I was not expecting anything like this - Ispica is at least as good as Noto and without the crowds. VISIT

The loggiato is simply splendid, the place was quiet and it was easy to imagine yourself in times past

Thank you for having this special church open all the time. I was able to light a candle for an ill friend and offer prayers while visiting Ispica. The interior is stunning.

if you are interested in Baroque architecture this is a stop well worth making. The little square in front of the church is modelled on saint peter's square in Rome and frames the church beatifully.
