Ragusa Ibla hosts a wide array of Baroque architecture, including several stunning palaces and churches.
The Cathedral of San Giorgio was built starting in 1738 by architect Rosario Gagliardi, in substitution of the temple destroyed by the 1693 earthquake, and of which only a Catalan-Gothyic style portal can still be seen. The façade is characterized by a flight of 250 steps and by massive ornate columns, as well as by statues of saints and decorated portals. It is topped by a large Neoclassical dome built in 1820.
