Basilica of San Salvatore (Basilica del SS. Salvatore) Tours

Basilica of San Salvatore (Basilica del SS. Salvatore)
Standing tall over its surrounding town square, the Basilica of San Salvatore (Basilica del SS. Salvatore) is one of Sicily’s best examples of Baroque style architecture. It’s at the heart of Val di Noto, a historic area designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The town of Noto was rebuilt after an earthquake in the late 17th century, and its structures represent not only the style but the detailed city planning and history that has endured.

Olive and lemon trees, small courtyards, and gardens still scenically surround the exterior. The church’s interior is intricately painted in mostly blue, gold, and pink, with a bell tower and several archways. Its vault is frescoed with a magnificent religious work called “Descent of the Holy Spirit.” And while the sandstone church is impressive inside and out, perhaps its greatest view is the one of the city from its rooftop.

Practical Info

The basilica is located in Palazzo Ducezio in Noto, Sicily. You can view its facade from the eastern part of the square. Stairs lead up to its rooftop, and the nearby churches and other buildings in the square are also worth taking time to explore.
