Ragusa Ibla


Ragusa, called the “city of bridges”, due to the presence of three very picturesque and historic buildings, suffered a devastating earthquake in 1693. The reconstruction, which took place in the eighteenth century, divided it into two large districts: on one side Upper Ragusa, located on the plateau, on the other Ragusa Ibla, built from the ruins of the ancient city and rebuilt according to the ancient medieval layout.
The architectural masterpieces built after the earthquake, together with all those present in the Val di Noto, were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002.
