Duomo di San Giorgio

By Xandru
The Duomo of San Giorgio is a Baroque cathedral in Ragusa Ibla, Sicily. Replacing an older church that was destroyed by an earthquake in 1693, it's construction began in 1738 and ended in 1775. Designed by Rosario Gagliardi, it features an extravagant convex facade rising like a three-tiered wedding cake, supported by gradually narrowing Corinthian columns and punctuated by jutting cornices. The interior is not so elaborate, but there are two significant paintings by Dario Querci.
