Noto Cathedral

Noto is one of the most important baroque towns in Italy and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Typical of the late-baroque buildings of this city is the honey-coloured stone.
A good example is the Noto Cathedral (Cattedrale di Noto or La Chiesa Madre di San Nicolò) of which I present here 3 pictures.

Before 1693 the town was located a few kilometers more north-west but in that year an earthquake destroyed the city and Noto has been rebuilt on the present site.

The construction of the cathedral began in the early 18th century and was completed in 1776.

The picture is taken on the rooftop terrace of the Chiesa di San Carlo al Corso.
