Baroque style and chocolate match perfectly together and make the irresistible appeal of Modica, a charming city 15 km from Ragusa which is divided in two areas: Modica Alta (upper Modica) and Modica Bassa (lower Modica). This town,located between two valleys and on the Pizzo’s hill, is a harmony of 18th century churches, palaces and buildings (all built according to the late baroque style) overlooking narrow, tiny streets, squares, and striking stairways. The most extraordinary example is Saint George’s Cathedral, a UNESCO world heritage site, which a stairway of 160 steps. Just a few metres away is the Polara Palace (XVIII century) which overlooks Modica Bassa, characterised by Saint Peter’s Cathedral embellished by its stairway with the statues of the twelve Apostles. But Modica is also famous thanks to its chocolate that has been made here since the eighteenth century . When this chocolate is mixed with vanilla, cinnamon or hot pepper, it is a irresistible temptation. The city is monumental looking, because of the past colonizations of Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans, but it has also, at the same time, a lively heart given by the nearby Marina Di Modica, considered surfers’ paradise.
