Ibla is situated on a hill about 450 metres above sea level. Its old town has more than 50 churches and numerous palazzi in the baroque style. The narrow, up- and downwards leading streets form a labyrinth of cobblestoned passages. Iblas' alleys, bridges and streets all accentuate the magic of Sicily. Perhaps for this reason Ragusa has been praised by famous literary figures as the "island within an island" or "the other Sicily". If you are in Ragusa in the first week of October, don't miss the Ibla Buskers, a five-day choreographic street spectacle in the historic alleys with jugglers, tightrope walkers, and musicians.
