Little church on the top of the main hill, with nice stairs framed by two lines of trees leading up to it. Would be great for a wedding photo shoot. A little bit further down the road there's a nice piazzetta.

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

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 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
