Ispica is a town located in the province of Ragusa. It is situated on the southeastern coast of Sicily, about 6km from the Mediterranean Sea.
The town has an ancient and interesting history dating back to the times of the Siculi and Greeks, but its current appearance is largely due to the Baroque architecture of the 18th century. There are numerous historic buildings to visit in Ispica, such as the San Bartolomeo Mother Church, the Belmonte Bruno Palace, the Nicolaci di Villadorata Palace, and the Castle of S. Maria.
One of the main attractions of Ispica is its unspoiled nature. The town is located in the heart of the Vendicari Nature Reserve, an area of great natural and scenic value that offers beautiful beaches, dunes, lagoons, and a wide variety of flora and fauna. Other natural attractions not to be missed include the Ispica Valley, a natural canyon carved into limestone rock, and the Grotta dei Santi, a prehistoric cave with rock carvings.
Ispica is also famous for its wine production, particularly the Cerasuolo di Vittoria, a dry red wine produced in the area of the municipality of Ispica and recognized as a controlled designation of origin. The town is also known for its gastronomy, which offers dishes based on fresh fish, meat, cheeses, and local vegetables.
