About Noto Sicily Italy

Noto is a picturesque town located on the eastern coast of Sicily, Italy. It is renowned for its stunning Baroque architecture and is often referred to as "Noto Antica" to distinguish it from the modern city of Noto, which was rebuilt in the 18th century after a devastating earthquake.

Here are some key highlights and information about Noto:

  1. Baroque Architecture: Noto is celebrated for its exquisite Baroque architecture, which is a result of the extensive reconstruction efforts following the earthquake of 1693. The town's historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its buildings feature intricate facades adorned with ornate details, balconies, and statues. Some notable Baroque buildings in Noto include the Noto Cathedral (Basilica di San Nicolò), the Palazzo Ducezio, and the Church of Santa Chiara.

  2. Reconstruction: After the earthquake, Noto was completely rebuilt in the Baroque style, which was prevalent during that period. The town's layout was carefully planned, and the architecture was designed to be harmonious and visually striking. As a result, Noto is often considered one of the most beautiful Baroque towns in Sicily.

  3. Cultural Attractions: In addition to its architecture, Noto boasts several cultural attractions. The Noto Cathedral, dedicated to St. Nicholas of Myra, is a stunning example of Sicilian Baroque architecture. Inside, visitors can admire impressive frescoes and sculptures. The Palazzo Ducezio, which serves as the town hall, is another notable structure worth exploring.

  4. Events: Noto hosts various cultural and religious events throughout the year. The most famous is the Infiorata di Noto, an annual flower festival held in May, during which intricate flower carpets are created on the streets of the town. This event attracts visitors from all over the world.

  5. Cuisine: Sicilian cuisine is renowned for its delicious flavors, and Noto is no exception. You can savor traditional Sicilian dishes at local restaurants and cafes. Be sure to try some of the local specialties, such as arancini (rice balls), cannoli (sweet pastries), and granita (a refreshing frozen dessert).
