Duomo di San Giovanni Battista

Church in Ragusa

The centrepiece of Ragusa Superiore, and a symbol of its urban renewal, is the enormous Duomo di San Giovanni Battista, built between 1718 and 1778. An elegant, terraced square fronts the ornate façade made asymmetrical by Mario Spada's pretty campanile. The latter's 129 steps can be climbed for a fetching view of the town.
