This gate is well worth seeing, and contributes to the unique feel of Ragusa. It is especially lovely at night, when it is well lighted. The figure of St. George slaying the dragon is very interesting.

Ragusa owes its Baroque splendour to an earthquake which meant a total rebuild. This gateway to the old cathedral is all that remains of the previous building. Thanks for the memory

The portal of St George survived(partially) the earthquake and although weathered and showing signs of wear and tear, the skill of the ancient stone masons is to behold. Look at the intricate edgings to the centre piece and you too will understand why it is...More

Beautiful architecture to sample local architecture. Close to central places of interest and amazing views.

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.
