Ragusa is the most south-located province of Italy and one of the most expanded cities in Sicily. The city is divided in two parts which now are connected by two beautiful ways to walk trough: the ancient “Ragusa Ibla” and the modern “Ragusa superiore”. Both areas have been successfully rebuilt after the terrible earthquake that affected the region in 1693 and the numerous monuments such as churches, unique palaces, squares, etc. are part of the UNESCO property since 2002.

Ragusa superiore is known as “the city of bridges” as it is characterized by three very different bridges (designed and built with diverse styles), that connect the different areas divided by a very inspiring touch of green and enriched by a touristic path all along the way.

 

The most representative building of Ragusa superiore is certainly the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist (“Cattedrale di San Giovanni Battista”), rebuilt after the earthquake with a magnificent Baroque touch.
