Via Ioppolo, 46 - RAGUSA (RG)
If you are wondering about the meaning of Sabbinirica, this term represents the most important greeting in the Sicilian language, the most respectful and reverential one.

Starting from a formal request for blessing (Sa binirica, as a contraction of Vossia, Vossignoria in Sa) to a solemn greeting of welcome and farewell.

Everything stems from the sense of family and social respect; it was believed, in fact, that older people or those of higher social status had the faculty of calling upon divine protection on the blessed. In Sicily, everyone could bless but also be blessed.

In the former Sangiovannaro district, behind Piazza degli Archi and Torre dell'Orologio, right where Filippo Garofalo identified the tail of the famous "fish" whose shape Ibla remembers, in the most important baroque complex of the city, Sabbinirica was born, Sicilian hospitality.

The ancient 18th-century building, whose foundations are most likely pre-earthquake, includes six comfortable and charming rooms, arranged on three different levels, and an independent holiday home.

There are also various common spaces available to guests for reading and relaxation.

The view from the balconies overlooking the Santa Domenica Valley is wonderful.

Opening soon, there will also be a shop selling local crafts and food and wine specialties, and a bar-cafeteria, where you can take a restorative break, enjoying the best that our territory has to offer.

The palace has been patiently and skillfully restored, respecting the local materials (especially Ragusa limestone and pitch stone) and the original architecture (arches, vaults, cross vaults, narrow stairs).

The care and dedication of the work done have made it a magical place to stay and spend a few days of pure serenity, in an evocative but familiar environment, an ideal starting point for the tour of the Val di Noto.

"Baroque is a matter not entirely liberated, and yet in its spaces one has the feeling of a fully achieved freedom, so wonderful is the art of welcoming, of hosting, in that unfinished that encloses and invites to rest. I suffer, says Baroque architecture, but you in my courtyards and under my domes will be a blessed guest," Guido Ceronetti.
