The only architectural element that survived the earthquake of 1693. It give a good idea of what the medieval town must have been.

The main element of the portal, the relief of St George and the dragon, is in very poor condition. However, the outermost band of the decorative orders above has charming reliefs of dragons and bent figures playing musical instruments Worth seeing for those alone

Passed this way as part of walking tour of Ragusa. Surviving gothic church portal with carving of St George still just visible.

Ragusa was almost completely rebuilt in the late Baroque style after the 1693 earthquake. This lovely portal to the old cathedral was saved. An interesting counterpart to the lovely 1100s architecture of Palermo and Monreale.

A total gem in the Ibla! The lovely, pink-limestone portal has a lunette depicting St. George slaying the dragon. This portal was part of the San Giorgio Church, built in 12th-13th century, and survived the devastating earthquake in 1693. Beautiful!!

One of the historic relics in Ragusa Ibla, a survivor of earthquakes, wars and the ravages of the passing years. Beautiful in its proportions.

This is a rare Sicilian medieval Norman church doorway that survived the major earthquake in 1693. It shows St George killing the dragon.

Going up a narrow, meandering, twisting road, in places large enough for two people, yet the odd car would squeeze through honking its horn! I found it amazing that the Portale di San Giorgio and the cathedral was still standing. Doesn't subsidence exist here? It...More

This portal was preserved, after the devastating 17th c earthquake, which flattened southern Sicily, and its gothic style is somewhat unique, amidst the reconstructed baroque town.
