Ragusa: Baroque Art

It’s the City of Baroque. It’s the place in Sicily I have always looked forward to visit… and finally we are here! I am just blown away marvelling at the staggering architecture of this magical city built around giant rocks and connected by stepped alleys.

I invite you to see why I just adore Italy.. and find out why Ragusa is listed as a Unesco World Heritage site.

 

 Ragusa Ibla is a gem of a place…

 Baroque Art

These grotesque figures are supposed to guard a house against bad spirits.  Well, they don’t have to try hard.

Ooopppssss…. the evil spirits might stay, I think

The church’s name?…. it’s Chiesa delle Santissime Anime del Purgatorio
(Church of the Souls of Purgatory)
