The town’s Cathedrals are often considered the most classic example of Sicilian baroque and are a must-see. You can visit the Castle of the Counts and clock tower located on top of the hill. Don't miss your chance to taste some of the famous Modica chocolate.
The Vendicari nature reserve is a naturalistic oasis used by migratory birds to rest and nest. From Calamosche beach to Vendicari, the walk is full of wonderful sites and beaches. The flamingo-viewing spot and the tuna-fishing nets are worth visiting.
