The church of San Domenico overlooks Piazza XVI Maggio. Built between 1703 and 1727 it is considered the most complete example of baroque design in Noto and is in typical Sicilian baroque architecture. Inside are a number of paintings dating back to the XVIII century....More

There are over 40 churches in Noto. So if you have to give some a miss this may be one. If passing drop inside to see the Baroque interior but there is nothing that singles this church out spectacularly from the others.

The church is somewhat interesting since it has been reconstructed. But the 10 minute film in the church that shows the roof collapse of the nearby cathedral is fascinating. It is hard to imagine a roof collapse, so it was great to see the film...More

This baroque church is located on the square of Fontana D'Ercole, and has a beautiful facade. There is a lovely park and fountain just outside where you can relax and enjoy the beauty that is Noto.

Noto has had a problem of various buildings decaying due to lack of car over the time since it was developed; however it was the partial but substantial collapse of this main church that really brought this home to everyone. From the outside it looks...More
