It is there, extravagant and luxurious, at the intersection of three valleys, a few kilometers from the ocean, with its medieval plant, and its neighborhoods filled with rosy homes under the warm sun.
Since 2002, the city that looks like a crib is UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also part of 7 Val di Noto villages. The historical center of the city is a result of the eighteenth-century reconstruction following the 1693 disaster earthquake that decimated the entire city. In his book The cities of the globe, the famous writer Elio Vittorini stated that “it is perhaps the most beautiful city in the world.”
