Overview

About the property

A double bedroom with a large bed with a large window to the garden

room included in the attic of a villa outside the city, surrounded by greenery and a few minutes drive from the historic center. Of ancient origins, the city of Modica was the capital of an ancient and powerful county whose territory, in the Middle Ages, extended to the gates of Palermo. The city was a thriving commercial and agricultural center where communities of Jews, Arabs, Normans and Spaniards lived together peacefully until the '400.

Rebuilt after the earthquake of 1693, Modica was formerly crossed by canals and bridges that made her one of the most fascinating cities in Italy. The city was, in fact, on the confluence of two rivers of Pozzo Pruni and Janni Mauro (now dry), which formed the bed of Modica, later became today's Corso Umberto I. Thanks to the Great Fountain source, among the most conspicuous that originated the Modica, arose less than 23 water mills, now sadly no longer exist on the territory of Modica. From '400 to the early' 900 was the fourth largest city in Sicily by population and political importance; its cultural liveliness is due to the presence of ecclesiastical educational institutions and lay people who have made it a prestigious center of learning.

Currently divided into three parts, the city of Modica has a certain beauty of the historic city center with its many houses stacked next to each other, often extensions of ancient grottoes. Apparently they were 700, in fact, inhabited caves since prehistoric times.

A medieval layout, the old town (today's low Modica) is a charming maze of houses, streets and long stairways, built around the hill of Pizzo. The predominant style is late baroque, back to the catastrophic earthquake of 1693 that affected several cities in Val di Noto. Due to its historical and architectural heritage, the town of Modica winning the UNESCO recognition in 2002.

Famous for its spicy chocolate, produced according to the ancient Aztec recipe, Modica is very appreciated for its gastronomic delights including the oil of Frigintini, one of the first in Italy for fruity scents. The modicano homemade ice cream has found its significant recognition: Modica is, in fact, one of the City of Italian Gelato.
