Boller castle was first mentioned in 1350, when it was owned by Otte Limbek (Queen Margareth's trusted man). The current main building was built in 1550-1588 and reconstructed in 1759. Today it is owned by Horsens Municipality and used as a nursing home. The beautiful park and meander along the forest road through the valley to Boller water mill is open to the public.

Blomster, sommerfugle og vand med åkander. Kan klart anbefales til hele familien. Flere bænke og stole som indbyder til at sidde ned og slappe af. Selve slottet er lukket for offentligheden undtagen ved enkelte lejligheder, men den tilhørende have oase er klart et besøg værd i sommertiden. Åbent 1. April - 15. Oktober

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.
