The moment we visited there was a wedding ceremony going on. We could not help... More

Like many others in town, this is a beautiful baroque church rebuilt after the earthquake 300 years ago. It is a very large church with a majestic staircase surrounded by small gardens. The facade is original and beautiful. The inside is larger than expected with many chapel with paintings of several periods. The ceiling is rather bare.

all the churches in modica are beautiful in their way, you need to be determined as there are many steps to get to it.

From the outside, it doesn't seem very big until you enter. Much bigger than it appears and overly ornate. Having minored in Art History, I thoroughly enjoyed the many wonderful oil paintings on the side altars/chapels. I was kind of surprised that the ceiling was relatively bare as compared to other Duomos.

The best part is the hike to get there. The large pompous staircase, the lush bougainvillee, the flat space in front of the church where children play ball.

Our room overlooked this from the other side of the hill. It was stunning by day & even more so by night. No matter where you look at it from it looks fantastic. Take a tour round the inside & it is just as marvellous. We didnt bother with the trip up tower as we were continuing our walk up... More

An encredible example of cult and architecture. August Renoir admiring the wonderful architectonic complex from the opposite hill proclaimed it à man's miracle.

Looking down onto the town, this church dominates its surroundings. When you get down to it, it does not disappoint. Wonderful steps to the entrance and a very interesting interior. Well worth a visit.
