The Baroque Road of Sicily.
Southeast Sicily is a World Unto Itself.
Located far off the beaten tourist track – mainly because of the poor road access – it has really only attracted appreciation in recent years. However, this is well deserved, as there are an abundance of world class attractions!
Apart from the wonderful variety of sites for nature lovers, including the natural reserves of Pantalica, Vendicari and Parco Forza, one may also travel along the “Baroque Road”, which passes by the cities of Ispica, Modica and Ragusa. These are considered true jewels of Sicilian Baroque architecture.
The Sicilian Baroque was strongly influenced by the Roman Baroque, understood as the stone genesis of the Counter-Reformation, but soon began its independent development, especially concerning the details and the execution of the decorative elements. A paradise for photographers!
