Ragusa and its history are really fascinating. Ibla, the district of the historic center, was rebuilt, like all the villages in the area, after the earthquake of the 1693.
It has about fifty churches and several palaces in late Baroque style. The bricks of the new buildings were obtained from some local quarries, including one adjacent to its perimeter.
During the twentieth century its recovery has made it that cultural and architectural jewel that today can be admired.
