Truly artisan pastry and chocolate, which is prepared by a master who had been doing that for 34 years! The artist himself is friendly, open for communication, and I wish I had a cooking class here.
There are wide choice of marzipan figures, chocolate bars, and, of course, cannoli.

The watermill “Cavallo d’Ispica” is an original piece of jewellery of rural art of the 18th century, situated on the northern part of the archaeological valley of Cava d’Ispica, few kilometres from Modica, centre of hyblean baroque as well as hometown of poet Quasimodo and famous for its renowned chocolate.
We were absolutely fascinated by the owner and his Mather, members of a family of millers since several generation. The water mill and the little museum are very well organised and the owner, son of the last Miller, is a very skilled and enthusiastic guide. This attraction is a real little gem that you do not expect. Top!

Magnificent Baroque church, lavishly decorated with marble, gold and lapis lazuli. Despite the richness of the decoration, it has a very holy feel. Stunning.

A place that is a journey through history. A church and a cloister where architecture, light and art capture attention, staring a visual and spatial experience that will be memorable and impressive. From a convent to a prison, from the fifteenth to the early nineteenth century, from earthquakes to the restoration, a wonderful gem arrives until our days to affirm the value of our cultural heritage.
This church and monastery is located within the grounds of the Modica correctional facility and is only open on Saturday mornings between 10 and noon. We went as part of an organised tour, but sole travellers are equally welcome, as no reservation appears to be necessary.

Chiesa di San Giovanni is not a Baroque church; it was reconstructed in the 19th century following the traditions of the famous Baroque churches of Modica. The location is spectacular: the elegant facade of of the church literally "flies" over Modica Alta. The wide staircase leads to the entrance; beautiful staircase leading to the church perched on the top is very typical to Modica Baroque masterpieces - Chiesa di San Giovanni was built in the same manner.
Take a short walk from this church to the Belvedere for the stunning views of Modica and the surrounding hills. Magnificent Panorama in the evening... perfect place to enjoy the sunset...

Very important relic witnesses the byzantine art in Modica.
Interesting the way how this site were unexpectedly discovered by a group of little kids while playing street soccer.
The ball fallen in the cave and the absyd were found due to some stunning figures painted.

While visiting Monica we visited Chiesa di Santa Maria de Betlem. It was a nice change from the tradition Baroque churches in Sicily. The colors were much softer and it was in excellent condition. Worth a visit.

We only found the Belvedere on our last night in Modica. It provides a beautiful view of the town and is the perfect place to be at sunset. Walk up hill in the old town to find it - it isn't always well sign posted but someone has painted the odd blue arrow on the walls and the locals will point you in the right direction.

We didn't have too many questions so our visit was brief, just to pick up the city map and inquire about a couple of landmarks. They seemed to be quite confident in their answers and knowledge of the town
