About the Local Area


In Modica there are two churches (Chiesa’s) which are definitely worth a visit: San Pietro, in the centre of Modica along the main street; and San Giorgio, in Modica Alta. The latter is a decent walk out of the town centre, however you are rewarded with beautiful views if you can make it up 'the grand staircase'. Modica is known for its Cioccolato al peperoncino (chilli chocolate) and there are several chocolate shops, museums and factories.

Here you will find a beautiful sandy beach which is great for swimming, and many sand dunes. In the high season there are many activities restaurants, cafes, shops and ice-cream parlours.
