The town of Modica is situated in Ragusa district, in Sicily.

The church as we know it today was rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake on the ruins of a previous building. You can enter in the church from the grand staircase of 164 steps, adorned with a garden called the Orto del Piombo. Inside the church there are five naves and 22 columns with Corinthian capitals.The paintings have a great artistic value, including the boards depicting the Holy Family and the scenes of Jesus’ life.

 

The Palace of Culture, which once was a monastery and then a court, now houses the Archaeological Museum, with many artifacts found in the area and also dating back to the third century, along with more recent works such as the private collection of paintings that once belonged to Salvatore Quasimodo who was born in Modica in 1901.
