The Cathedral of San Giorgio is one of the most important example of the Hyblean Baroque style. Rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake, its wonderful Baroque facade is characterised by a massive flight of steps which provide a fascinating scenic effect. The church has five naves with Corinthian capitals and lots of amazing stuccos and decorations covering the ceiling.
