Some history in it - on your way nice to check out and tick off of your list ?

A little too clean and polished, I think it would be better with natural landscaping

It's worth visiting if you're near Kesh, just for it's history. There's an information board beside the carpark and it's only a short walk to the stone circle. You only need to spend about 10 minutes here.

It is point of interest, rather than the attraction. It makes an excellent location for a break if you need to stop and get some fresh air after hours of driving. It is well maintained, located in the entry to the field.

Late Baroque Town of Ragusa

The eight towns in south-eastern Sicily, including Ragusa, were all rebuilt after 1693 on or beside towns existing at the time of the earthquake which took place in that year. They represent a considerable collective undertaking, successfully carried out at a high level of architectural and artistic achievement. Keeping within the late Baroque style of the day, they also depict distinctive innovations in town planning and urban building. Together with seven other cities in the Val di Noto, it is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In 1693 Ragusa was devastated by a huge earthquake, which killed some 5,000 inhabitants. Following this catastrophe the city was largely rebuilt, and many Baroque buildings from this time remain in the city. Most of the population moved to a new settlement in the former district of Patro, calling this new municipality 'Ragusa Superiore' (Upper Ragusa) and the ancient city 'Ragusa Inferiore' (Lower Ragusa). The two cities remained separated until 1926, when they were fused together to become a provincial capital in 1927.
