This Sicilian-Gothic portal with a relief showing St George Killing the Dragon survived the 1693 earthquake. It is enclosed with a gate of wrought iron. It is especially beautiful under the lights at night.
This gate is well worth seeing, and contributes to the unique feel of Ragusa. It is especially lovely at night, when it is well lighted. The figure of St. George slaying the dragon is very interesting.
The portal of St George survived(partially) the earthquake and although weathered and showing signs of wear and tear, the skill of the ancient stone masons is to behold. Look at the intricate edgings to the centre piece and you too will understand why it is...More
The main element of the portal, the relief of St George and the dragon, is in very poor condition. However, the outermost band of the decorative orders above has charming reliefs of dragons and bent figures playing musical instruments Worth seeing for those alone
Ragusa was almost completely rebuilt in the late Baroque style after the 1693 earthquake. This lovely portal to the old cathedral was saved. An interesting counterpart to the lovely 1100s architecture of Palermo and Monreale.
