These eight beauties represent some of the best examples of Baroque architecture to be found in Sicily, making the area an ideal destination for those that appreciate art and culture. Wander the honey-coloured streets and admire the ornate balconies and magnificent facade. Then hop in a car to head out of town and relax on the soft, sandy beaches that litter this part of the coast.
