Another Gagliardi masterpiece even further up the hill of Modica Alta. If you have done enough step climbing it is easy to drive up here, maybe on your way out of Modica. Park in one of the surrounding small streets. Another splendid church with a...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 church is located at the tip of Modica alta, and is also in the highest point of the city ( 450m above sea level). The interior of the church is beautiful, however, its walking up to the bell tower for the view that make...More

This church sits up off the streets and affords a wonderful view. It is also nearby the Belvedere which offers panoramic views. Definitely worth checking out. Mind the parking in the narrow streets.

High above the town, with a wide front steps and pretty interior. The nearby belvedere is certainly worth a trip, in part to be given some Modica chocolate by the cafe owner.

We have been to Modica several times, but never managed to see this church from the inside. It always seems to be closed even when other attractions of Modica are open. It has a perfect location at the top of upper Modica. There is a...More

Chiesa di San Giovanni is not a Baroque church; it was reconstructed in the 19th century following the traditions of the famous Baroque churches of Modica. The location is spectacular: the elegant facade of of the church literally "flies" over Modica Alta. The wide staircase...More

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

Getting to this one is a challenge, especially in the heat of the summer. Going back down is utterly enjoyable as it is sitting in the church to recover for a little while. The church is very light and calming, Baroque but softer that elsewhere.
