  2. 2. Ragusa Ibla Ragusa is one of eight places recognized by UNESCO where the devastation wrought by a major earthquake in 1693 resulted in a massive public rebuilding program and the construction of fanciful late baroque palazzos, cathedrals, churches and other buildings. (The others are Caltagirone, Catania, Militello, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo and Scicli.) Ragusa is divided into two parts. There is the modern part, which is further subdivided between the truly modern town, with shopping malls and an ugly and imposing asphalt operation, and a more graceful older quarter built in the 18th and 19th centuries. And there is the most historic part, Ragusa Ibla, the medieval town rebuilt in an eruption of baroque on the old footprint of coiling streets. Ragusa este una dintre cele opt localităţi înscrise pe listele patrimoniului mondial UNESCO, în care drept urmare devastatorului cutremur din anul 1693 s-a aplicat un sistem unitar de reconstruire a clădirilor (palate, biserici, catedrale) în stil baroc. Celelale oraşe sunt Caltagirone, Catania, Militello, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo şi Scicli . Ragusa este formată din două părţi: oraşul modern şi partea medievală. Ragusa Inferioară este cunoscută sub numele de Ragusa Ibla sau pur şi simplu Ibla şi este un adevărat nucleu istoric, un amestec de antic (sec.III î.C.), medieval şi baroc "To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything.“ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

  6. 7. In Ragusa Ibla next to the 'Villa' (as the Sicilians call their public gardens) you'll find the remains of the ancient church of San Giorgio built around the XII century (a beautifull example of Gotic-Catalan style). The church was very badly damaged during an earthquake in 1693 and most of the stones of the old church were used to build the new Duomo of San Giorgio. În Ragusa Ibla lângă Parcul oraşului (Villa comunale) se află vechea poartă a fostei biserici San Giorgio, frumos exemplu de gotic catalan. Biserica a fost iremediabil distrusă de cutremurul din anul 1693 şi majoritatea pietrelor ei au fost refolosite pentru construirea Domului San Giorgio
