Dominated by the imposing Church of San Giorgio, Modica is a baroque town whose origins date back to either 1031 BCE or 1360 BCE. However, the site has been occupied by the Sicels ever since the 7th Century BCE. Nestled in the beautiful Hyblaean mountain range, Modica, like its other Sicilian contemporaries, boasts of a rich and an eventful past. It has seen invasions by a string of rulers like the Arabs and the Romans. Declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it also remains popular for its locally manufactured chocolate, alluring gourmands and leisure seekers alike.
