INFO NOTO

Notos is a small jewel of Sicilian art and culture, a magnificent example of late Eighteenth-century Baroque architecture, overlooking the valley of the Asinaro river with the Ionian Sea to the east and the Mediterranean to the south. Its historic center was listed as Unesco World Heritage Site in 2002, along with the other late Baroque towns of the Noto Valley. After the reconstruction following the earthquake of 1693, Noto has become one of the most visited art cities of Italy, with an ever increasing Italian and international tourism. Recent statistics collected by the Centro Studi Turistici of Florence confirm for Noto an average annual increase of visitors around 5% from 2010, a growth that mainly concerns international guests. The whole Noto Valley is today an exclusive destination, not only for its artistic and cultural heritage but also for its food and wine tradition. The tourist resorts of the area are the icing on the cake: the beaches of the natural reserve of Vendicari, the ponds of the great quarry, the archaeological area of Pantalica, the Roman Villa of Tellaro, Marzamemi and the old Noto.
