For those who want to learn more about Ragusa and Ragusa Ibla ...

The small inhabited center of Ragusa Ibla, existing since the times of prehistory as evidenced by the remains of the ancient necropolis, soon became one of the richest cities in all of Sicily thanks to the fertile land and the mild climate it enjoyed. In addition to agriculture, craftsmanship also flourished, linked above all to the processing of iron, wood and local stone. But unfortunately, on a dark day in 1693, the lively town of Ragusa Ibla was razed to the ground by a violent earthquake, which also destroyed the rest of eastern Sicily. Thousands of dead and wounded together with what remained of collapsed houses, palaces and churches filled the dusty streets which have become unrecognizable. But the Ragusans did not lose heart and the survivors started the reconstruction of a new city, but following two different directions: the devotees at San Giorgio rebuilt on the old site where Ragusa Ibla stood, while the devotees at San Giovanni rebuilt more above, or in the current historic center of Ragusa Superiore. The two parts of the city were connected by the staircase of Santa Maria delle Scale, still usable today to reach the other part of the city and from which you can enjoy a wonderful panorama.
Both Ragusa and Ragusa Ibla were rebuilt with the imposing and majestic Baroque style, which finds its apex in the two wonderful cathedrals: the Cathedral of San Giovanni Battista in Ragusa Superiore and the Duomo of San Giorgio in Ragusa Ibla, both symbolizing a large rebirth.
Furthermore, in Ragusa Superiore, three bridges were built to connect the new city that stood behind the Santa Domenica Valley, the city's green lung. For this reason Ragusa has earned the nickname "City of the 3 Bridges", namely the Padre Scopetta Bridge (Ponte Vecchio), the San Vito Bridge and the Via Roma Bridge.
Our facilities are located one (Pura Vida Iblea) in Ragusa Ibla about a minute walk from the Cathedral of San Giorgio and the other (Pura Vida Barocca) in the historic center of Ragusa Superiore about five minutes walk from the stairs of Santa Maria that lead straight to Ragusa Ibla.
Both structures are located just minutes from bars, restaurants, pizzerias, supermarkets, bakeries and pharmacies. The train and bus station is also very close in both cases.
Marina di Ragusa with its wonderful white sand beaches is located 20 minutes away by car or bus; at 40 minutes by car there are also the interesting tourist sites of Noto, Siracusa and Marzamemi; at 20 minutes instead the baroque sites of Modica and Scicli. Finally, just a 15-minute drive away is the beautiful Donnafugata Castle.
The province of Ragusa today is a rich and thriving area that dominates the rest of Sicily, and has become famous in recent years thanks to the fiction of Commissario Montalbano, shot in Ragusa Ibla, Scicli and Punta Secca.
