Walking in Scicli

Culture and History tour in Scicli

Tour Price : €150 Duration : 4 hours Languages: English, Italian

Scicli, the pearl of Hyblaean Baroque, is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is dominated by three hills on whose tops you can admire the Convent of Saint Mary of the Cross and Saint Matthew's Church. The sides of these three rocky acropoleis are tied up like a nativity scene thanks to peculiar dwellings. The sides are also characterised by rocky dwellings as shown in the exemplary area of Chiafura. After the 1693 earthquake, the town was moved to the valley and centred in the area between via Mormino Penna and Saint Bartholomew's Church where all the extraordinary late Baroque buildings, which render the town of Val di Noto unique, meet. The tour will start from the monumental streets of the lower city where we will visit Saint Theresa's, Saint Michael's, John the Evangelist's and Saint Ignatius' churches together with the near Beneventano and Fava Palaces that show wonderful mascaron ornaments cut by gouges. Afterwards, we will go through the path that brings to the majestic Saint Matthew's religious complex which overlooks the entire town. Finally, after visiting the rocky area of Chiafura, we will go down towards Saint Bartholomew's church to enjoy this true pearl of the Sicilian Baroque.
