My favourite church in Modica. Not the biggest or grandest, not the best architecture but there is something about it that I can't put my finger on. When you look up at the white church with the trees lined up on either side it's surreal...More

Must go on top of Modica alta and visit this beautiful and imposing barroque church. The nearby belvedere is a plus for great photos.

This is right at the top of the town so you face a serious climb to get there if you go on foot. The interior is nothing to get excited about compared to other churches in the town but the setting is wonderful and it...More
