The baroque architecture in its own Sicilian style is central core of the island’s identity, revealing somehow its real soul: magnificent, theatrical, rich of magic, religious and monstrous details. This mixture of cultural influences is visible all around the island but, at the same time, each city has a own identity and appeal: cosmopolitan Taormina, medieval Erice, Ragusa, Modica, Noto as the trio of Baroque pearls, the ancient Greek Syracuse and Agrigento and lava stone Catania. Palermo, the capital, is a challenge as it owns every possible kind of beauty that can be found in Sicily and a disarming traffic jam.
