Noto - The Sicilian baroque town

Noto is supposed to be THE Sicilian baroque town. After it was nearly completely destroyed by an earthquake, one of the most beautiful baroque towns was built up. Noto also belongs to the Unesco heritage. When walking along the main street, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, you get to the city centre automatically. Especially interesting are the town hall and the cathedral, which can be found on the “Piazza del Municipio”. Unfortunately, many buildings are not in a really good condition, and for quite a while already restoration works are done to keep the past’s valuable treasures. Since 2007 the cathedral is accessible for visitors again. Anyhow, Noto is worth a visit in any case.
