Gallery (31) Map

In the heart of Modica's historic center, adjacent to the majestic San Giorgio cathedral and its grand staircase, stands Palazzo Polara-an exquisite 18th century Baroque residence. This particular property is an independent section of this iconic building. Upon entering through a stone archway from the cathedral's side stairs, you will find yourself in a private courtyard. This tranquil space, adorned with lush greenery and white stone accents characteristic of Modica Baroque, provides access to the two-level house spanning approximately 200 square meters. Inside, a striking pitch stone staircase welcomes you and leads to the upper floor. Here, a spacious hall with meticulously restored frescoed vaults offers captivating views of the Duomo staircase and the rooftops of the historic center. The original cement tiles still grace the floors. Two generous bedrooms, sharing a bathroom, overlook a sizable terrace that presents panoramic views of the cathedral dome and the column capitals of the lateral nave. Descending to the lower level, you'll find a kitchen adorned with delightful floral motifs, a bathroom featuring period-appropriate materials, and a storage space. The building effortlessly preserves the elegance and prestige of Palazzo Polara, evoking the sensation of reaching out to touch the intricate Baroque facades. Conveniently located just 90 minutes from Catania Fontanarossa airport and a mere 20 minutes from the Catania-Gela motorway entrance, this property also presents an excellent investment opportunity for tourist rentals.
