FERIENHAUS SIZILIEN IN NICOLOSI/MODICA is an ancient Sicilian small town placed in the south-eastern area of the island, 15 Km away from Ragusa. Its history traces back to the Greek colonization passing through - respectively - the Roman, Byzantine and Arabian rule until 1091, when the Normans made it a shire. Artistically speaking Modica is typically baroque and its beauty lies most of all in its eighteenth century texture of buildings. Among the several churches and mansions worth visiting the magnificent “Chiesa di San Giorgio” (Saint George Church) with its flight of steps (250 steps) stands out. Important folk happenings and performances worth visiting are: “a Maronna Vasa Vasa” (pretty local religious performance connected with our Lady Mother Mary) taking place on Easter day morning; the “Giostra dei Chiaromonte “ (Tournament of the Chiaromonte family) evoking the birth of the shire and taking place on the first day of August; the “festa di San Giorgio” (Saint George\'s feast) on the week-end following the 23rd April; the “festa dell\'Addolarata” (Our Lady of Sorrows\' feast) in October.
