Designed like a theatre set, Noto was built following the 1693 earthquake which destroyed the old town situated 10km away. The Baroque setting reached unequalled perfection in the new city where magnificent limestone palaces were built by the banks of the Corso, side by side churches crowned with domes and flanked by endless staircases. This faultless stylistic exercise will leave the visitor speechless, particularly at sunset.
