The Unesco Late Baroque Towns

In June 2002 the UNESCO registered Val di Noto area in the World Heritage List.This list included eight towns in the provinces of Catania, Siracusa and Ragusa : Caltagirone, Catania, Militello Val di Catania, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo Acreide, Ragusa and Scicli. These towns represent the greatness of Late Baroque art and culture. Thousands of tourists every year visit these towns which were completely rebuilt after the devastating earthquake in 1693 and nowadays represent the triumph of the Baroque style in Sicily.
