Modica: the city of a hundred churches
It is known as the city of a hundred churches because of the hundreds of religious buildings in the area. We are talking about Modica, a town of over 50000 inhabitants, which lays about 15 kilometers far from Ragusa. Together with Ragusa, Modica represents one of the richest cities of historical-cultural examples related to the baroque and late baroque period. In 2002 it was included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage cities.

Following the earthquake of 1693 that completely destroyed it, Ragusa was rebuilt together with churches, palaces and monuments in Baroque and late Baroque style.
