Piece of beef with roquefort sauce and these fresh vegetables and gourmet coffee. A real delight: tender meat without too much sauce. Congratulations to the cook.

We travelled through here and took a break, we visited this bar and were pleasantly surprised by the attentive staff and quick service. It was nice to sit on the bars terrace in the sun and chill out. If your a bargain hunter try and make it on market day as its a proper country town market where you can get fresh produce direct from the farmers. The town centre is lovely and has quite a history, the nearby chateau hosted the first opera in France in AD 1160. Take a look at the magnificent cathedral but take your time and above all don't rush, only the traffic passes quickly here.

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.
