Pictures of Ragusa, Sicily

Ragusa's Ibla, or old town, is one of the top tourist attractions in Sicily

By

Once you've climbed the hill from Ragusa's "new" town, Ragusa Ibla is pretty much guaranteed to charm you.

Ragusa Ibla was the old town that had to be rebuilt after an earthquake in 1693, which is why the architecture in the Ibla is mainly made up of Baroque and Neo-Classical styles, as you can see in the pictures.

One of my favorite pastimes in Ragusa is to look up at the corbels supporting the balconies. Many are decorated with grotesque figures and masks.

Ragusa is a fascinating place to visit, and the towns around it, if you have a car, are very interesting as well. These villages include Modica and Scicli.
