Modica

The town of Modica, which is a UNESCO World heritage site, is considered the symbol of Sicilian baroque. Modica however, has much more to offer than its famous Baroque palaces with their intricate facades, monuments and spectacular churches. It's a unique place-a noble, un-hurried yet vibrant town that the traveller can't help falling in love with. It's a visual treat and its narrow alleys are a hub of activity with night clubs and famous restaurants. It's also a paradise for chocolate devotees which is still produced here in the same way as the ancient Aztecs made it in the 16th century. Modica is ideally located in the middle of the Noto Valley, so it’s an ideal base for visiting the other Baroque cities of Noto, Ispica, Ragusa Ibla and Scicli. You can’t miss a trip to the nature reserves of Vendicari nature reserve where there are some wonderful beaches and the lakes of Cavagrande. A trip to this part of the island wouldn't be complete without seeing the naturalist-archaeological site of Pantalica and the surrounding unspoilt beaches of this stretch of the South-Eastern Sicilian coast.
