So nice this place. It dominates the town of Modica. Nice is the park down below. The style of the church is amazingly. To go in is more interesting.

We struggledup all the stepsto this church but it was worth it. Staggeringly beautiful baroque decoration not as heavy as in Spain. The frontage and tower are stupendous . It has a strange year long kind of sundial calendar which is most unusual

The church itself is stunning, as were the views as we walked there from the center of town. Definitely worth a visit!

Absolutely stunning view of the town. Church is free to enter however there is a 2$ charge to go into the bell tower which is absolutely worth the fee.

Worth visiting especially if you go just before the feast of St. George when the fabulous statue of St.George is out on full view prior to the important religious procession in his honour on 23rd April
