Located on Corso Umberto I, this church does not have the same lofty location as Chiesa di San Giorgio, but the statues flanking the few steps in front of the church do give the entrance a somewhat grand feel.

Not to be missed. The architecture os magnifiscent. It is tight in the centre of Modica. Quite a number of steps to go up, but worth it

Baroque style church in the centre of town. Very impressive with the statues on either side of the stairs leading to the entry. The town of Modica has many magnificent buildings

Such a pretty and regal church set on top of many steps in the quaint city of Modica. I just sat down and said a prayer to be able to stay inside the quiet, special place for a few minutes longer.

Stands out and cannot be missed, while you travel through Modica. Lovely building, with some great architecture, and beautiful statues. Recommend a visit here.

Parking at a premium, but church is as impressive inside as out. View the apostles outside and the beautiful designed floor inside. Very well impressed and well preserved. Also view from above city from road.
