The small castle of Aarau ('Schlössli') has remained nearly unchanged since the 13th century. The 'Schlössli' is the oldest building in the city. It was already founded at the time of the establishment of the city shortly after 1200; the exact date is not known. Today it hosts a city museum.

Ich war anfangs Februar zur Kontrolle in der Pallas-Klinik Aarau beim neuen Arzt Dr. Peter Raak und ich bin begeistert von ihm. Er ist freundlich, geduldig, menschlich und erklärt alles genau und klar verständlich.ich fühlte mich ernst genommen. Leider war das nicht so bei früheren Terminen bei zwei verschiedenen Ärzten. Da wurden meine Fragen unwillig beantwortet, nur wenig erklärt und ich fühlte mich abgefertigt. Da ich selber in einer Klinik in der Patientenberatung tätig bin, weiss ich was gute Betreuung ist. Wie bin ich froh, jetzt bei Dr. Raak in Behandlung zu sein!!

War eine sehr unfreundliche und inkompetente Ärztin, beherrschte die Sprache nicht mal richtig

Nach einem für mich unbefriedigenden Ärztewechsel fehlte mir das Vertrauen in die Klinik, weshalb ich mittels Brief mein Fall schilderte und meine Krankengeschichte einforderte. Der Brief wurde nie beantwortet und auch die Akte traf nie bei mir ein. In der Folge habe die Krankengeschichte nochmals telefonisch eingefordert und in Aarau persönlich abgeholt.

I was born extremely near sited, ca.(-13L. eye -12R eye) After years of wearing glasses and contact lenses, I took a leap of faith and walked into the Augen Zentrum in Aarau to discuss having lenses implanted behind the Hornhaut. (2007) To this day, I have not had a single issue or complication with my eyes. I am so blessed to have received this operation. They performed the procedure without a down payment; even though my health insurance wasn't willing to pay a single frank. With the help of my generous parents, I was able to pay off the bill. (well worth it)!!! Thank your Aarau Augen Zentrum

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.
