Of considerable difficulty to reach, the Torre San Filippo was built in the 800 by the owner of the homonymous feud in order to better control its territorial area. This complex of buildings is truly unique to the viewer. The first thing that catches one’s eye is the church with its neo-Gothic facade, which conveys the idea that the landowner had a certain aesthetic taste when he decided to build his own palace here.
Despite the numerous initial protests by the local population, thinking of a possible territorial disintegration, the lake is now shown to us as a perfect natural habitat, where numerous species of animals and plants have adapted perfectly to the surrounding environment.
Not far from Ragusa there are two treasures with a unique archaeological value throughout the province. I’m talking about the Cave of the Trabacche and the Catacomb of Cisternazzi. Let’s find out together! 🙂
After having seen the whole city far and wide, are you curious to know what’s good to eat here in Ragusa? Make yourself comfortable!
Town originally built by the Sicilians, Ragusa was originally called Hybla Heraia, of which very few ruins now remain near the Ibleo Garden, in Ragusa Ibla.
Cava dei Servi is a spectacular river valley excavated by the Tellesimo stream, in an area between Modica and Ragusa, more precisely in San Giacomo.
It is thought that the name Cava dei Servi is linked to the theory that the Servants of God were here. Other sources, however, claim that the name “Servi” is to be associated with the fact that the less wealthy families, belonging to the lower social ranks, lived here.
Hi my friends! Today I bring you to Cava d’Ispica, a deep river valley that cuts the Ibleo area for 13 km, extending with a North / South-East orientation between the territories of Modica and Ispica.The history of this quarry is lost in the millennia.

Today I want to bring you to a truly fascinating place: La Conca del Salto.Between Scicli and Modica, on the road called Ciumara, you can see – with amazement for those who drive this road for the first time – a beautiful valley surrounded by nature, with a cascading waterfall.
Sampieri is a small seaside village located about ten kilometers from Scicli. Initially a fishing village, this village had in the last few years an increasing interest so much to be a destination for tourists from Italy and abroad.A strong point not to be overlooked of this village is the beach, characterized by a fine and soft sand like that of the desert. The majestic dunes are the main features, from whose top you can have a magnificent view over the whole coast.
