The Iblea region is renowned for the harmonious and pure Baroque architecture that characterizes its old towns. Following the earthquake of 1693, all the towns were rebuilt in Baroque style with some of the most exquisite Baroque buildings and churches of Europe. Many of them are UNESCO Heritage Sites. Just to mention some of them: Ragusa-Ibla, Modica, Scicli, Ispica, Comiso, Noto. Or, slightly outside the Iblea region, one can see Caltagirone and its famed ceramics, Palazzolo Acreide and Piazza Armerina, world famous for its impressive mosaics housed in a Roman Villa.
