Ragusa is a beautiful baroque city, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Once you get a view of the town, you’ll be amazed to find out that it is not one city, but two. The old part, Ibla, with it’s narrow streets and steep steps, has the ideal borders the tiles of the tower of of St. Mary’s Tower of the Idria and the green lush of the Ibleo Garden overlooking the valley below.
The special charm of Ibla be found in its small details: the houses leaning against each other, colored tiles from the roofs that they miss every once in a bell tower, a pinnacle, the great dome of St. George ‘s elegance of Baroque and Rococo churches and palaces, the horrible faces of the stone gargoyles that guard prospects and doorways.
Sampieri Beach or Donnalucata
It is one of the most beautiful and extensive coastlines in the province of Ragusa. A beach that extends about 2 km until you reach the area of “Pisciotto”, a unique display of industrial architecture (it was a brick kiln). In 1900, it was destroyed as a result of a fire and made famous by the television series Inspector Montalbano. Part of the beach is covered by a small forest area and is surrounded by sand dunes. The clean beach and the coastline of dramatic cliffs make Sampieri a favorite spot to sun bathe. Along the beach there are plenty of beach clubs and shore lines where one can spend afternoons and evenings.
