Ragusa: a fascinating city
Once landed in Comiso Airport, you can pick your rental car up, booked thanks to the service offered by Acarent, and leave towards the Hyblaean city.
Ragusa is a city with ancient origins: today it is about 500 metres far from the main city centre, where its XVIII century predecessor, Hybla, stood up; this city has already existed in the Sicilian age, as the tombs in Valle del Gonfalone and the findings in the archaeological museum witness. Hybla has been occupied for long time by the Greeks, who called it Hybla Heraia; then, the Romans took over, who turned the name into Heresium.
During the Norman age, the city had a great development, so that it became a county with d’Altavilla, son of Roger I. In the far 1693, after a big heartquake, Ragusa was destroyed, then it was rebuilt creating two different municipalities, Ragusa and Ibla. Lastly, in 1926, they were unified, forming the current city of Ragusa and becoming the chief town of the province.
With a rental car from Comiso to the discovery of…
Ragusa city, thanks to its history, encloses within its territory a series of palaces and churches which give the city a unique aspect and a significative beauty, especially in the area where in the past Hybla stood up.
Among all the monuments, the church of San Giorgio, a work created by Rosario Gagliardi and certainly one of the most beautiful examples of the Baroque age in Sicily, excels. The town of Ragusa has been linked to the agriculture of the island for many centuries; examples of this are the “masserie” (farmhouses) and the use of the geometric grid of dry stone walls of the Hyblaean highland.
