Noto, Sicily

The town of Noto is a baroque jewel perched on a plateau overlooking a valley covered with citrus groves. It is easy to visit. All the monuments are on the main road. Its beauty comes from the tragic earthquake of 1693, after which the city was rebuilt in limestone, which over the years has taken a golden tint and a beautiful rose. The Baroque towns of Noto Valley has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002.
