Golden Baroque in Sicily
Package price per person, 5 days from € 259,00Group price valid from 20 participants.
The magnificent Baroque in south-east Sicily rose from the ruins of an earthquake that flattened south-east Sicily in 1963. The theatrical, dynamic, opulent Baroque style is clearly visible in the squares, the overviews, decorations, balconies, parapets with anthropomorphic decorations, the facades with their interplay of concave and convex lines… This heritage resulted from extensive rebuilding thanks to the strength of Sicily‘s inhabitants who rose against ill luck, destruction and ruins.
Overnight in the area of Ragusa. We depart for Palazzolo Acreide, where we visit the historic centre rich in baroque palaces, churches and the Roman amphitheatre.
