I just recently returned from a wonderful visit to Sicily, to see some great friends and to be a jury member of the Ibla Grand Prize music competition. I had a great time and thought you might like to see some of the sights from the village in which we hold the festivities.
Ragusa Ibla is a small village on the next hilltop over from the city of Ragusa. Both towns have a population of over 72,000, but Ibla is the smaller and older of the two. They are both part of a regional UNESCO World Heritage site in the southeast corner of the island.
Here are some images from this beautiful place:

Many beautiful Baroque decorations.

They have a wonderful lighting director.
This is a very special place.
