Ispica: Holiday homes


Ispica lies in the southeast of Sicily. The town was destroyed by the great earthquake in 1693 and then rebuilt in baroque splendour. The nearby nature reserve of the river Irminio offers you almost virgin nature as well as dune beaches.

Holiday homes at the sea in the near of the baroque town of churches on a white limestone plateau

Ispica lies in the southeast of Sicily. The town, which was called Spaccoforno until 1935, owes its name to the nearby gorge – Cava d’Ispica.

13 km long, the latter ends at Ispica and up to the great earthquake of 1693, the settlement was actually located within it.

Located on a white limestone plateau and surrounded by a fertile landscape, Ispica, rebuilt, presents itself in baroque splendour.

In the square of the same name, Basilicata Santa Maria Maggiore, its ceilings decorated with stucco and with frescos by Olivio Sozzi, is particularly worth a visit.

Excursion into baroque surroundings

Those interested in culture should use the opportunity of visiting Mòdica, which is within a stone’s throw. With its narrow terraced alleys and its successful integration into the wildly romantic landscape, the town was declared World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. The ruins of the castle with its conspicuously large clock tower are a striking eye-catcher. Scicli, located near the seaside, is also entitled to call itself “World Heritage Site” due to its fanciful buildings and beautifully laid out plazas.

Wide sandy beaches and the nature reserve of the river Irminio

Not only do those interested in culture get their money’s worth. ‘Water bugs’ will find fantastic conditions at the wide sandy beaches between Portopalo, Santa Marina del Focallo and Scoglitti. Riserva del Fiume Irmino has been named after the river which meets the sea between Marina di Ragusa and Donnalucata. Beaches with dunes, at which you can also enjoy bathing, the typical "macchia mediterranea" and rare species of animals make for the charm of the nature reserve.

Kitesurfing at Santa Maria del Focallo

At Floripa Surf House, you can rent adequate equipment, but can also have a kitesurf teacher introduce you to this exciting type of water sport.
