Unfortunately, the cathedral's dome (cupola) collapsed due to an earthquake a few years ago. The Cathedral, symbol of the Baroque of Val di Noto, which was reopened in 2007 eleven years after the earthquake that had devastated, saw in 2010 the inauguration of the frescoes in the dome, made by Oleg Supereco, and windows of the drum, Francesco Mori.
The church symbol the Garden of Stone, recognized World Heritage Site UNESCO, have also concluded the work of construction of the altar, ambone and the cross, made by the sculptor Giuseppe Ducrot.
Noto is, quite simply, the apotheosis of Baroque town planning and architecture. Completely destroyed by the terrible 1693 earthquake, it was rebuilt from scratch on a new site, about 10km from the old centre.
In Noto's main square, the Piazza Municipio, you'll find the Cathedral of Noto. Unfortunately, the cathedral's dome (cupola) collapsed due to an earthquake a few years ago. The Palazzo Vescovile (Bishop's Palace) is next to the cathedral while the town hall is opposite, across the square.
