Modica The Essential
Interesting
Modica was twice (in 1902 and 1963) entirely destroyed and rebuilt. This ability to adapt has resulted in a bewildering cluster of ochre-coloured houses huddling on the slopes, countless Baroque churches and huge flights of stairs linking the upper to the lower town. The city is more than worthy of its Unesco World Heritage label. The city is also renowned for its pastries and chocolate - a tradition that dates back to the 16C.
