Ragusa: a charming city
As soon as you land at Comiso Airport , you can pick up pre- booked rental car through the service provided by Acarent , and head towards for the Iblean city.
Ragusa is a city with ancient origins; today it is located about 500 meters from the main center where its eighteenth-century preceptress, Ibla, once stood; this city was already present in the Sicilian age, as evidenced by the tombs present in the Valle del Gonfalone and by the finds found in the archaeological museum . Ibla has been occupied for a long time by the Greeks, who call it Hybla Heraia ; they were replaced by the Romans, who transformed the name into Heresium.
During the Norman age the city had a great development, to the extent that it became a county under d’Altavilla, son of Ruggero I. In the distant 1693 following a strong earthquake Ragusa was destroyed and subsequently rebuilt creating two separate municipalities Ragusa and Ibla . Finally, in 1926, they were unified, forming the current city of Ragusa and becoming the provincial capital.

The city of Ragusa, with its rich history, encloses in the territory a series of palaces and churches that give the city a unique appearance, giving the capital a significant beauty, especially in the area where Ibla once stood.
Of all the monuments stands out the Church of San Giorgio, created by Rosario Gagliardi, certainly one of the most beautiful examples of the Baroque period in Sicily. The town of Ragusa for many centuries has been linked to the agricultural activities of the island, clear examples of which are the farms and the use of the geometric grid of dry stone walls of the Hyblean plateau.
