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.

Sabbinirica Guesthouse is Superb! It is charming with just a few rooms, and yet a lovely, common sitting room, picturesque breakfast room, and even a tiny gift shop. Their breakfasts are huge and wonderful providing many pastries, meats, cheeses, and fruit as well as freshly and nicely cooked eggs, omelets, and oatmeal (and we're foodies so our expectations are high). The rooms are comfortable and beds, excellent. The location can't be beat as it's in Ragusa Ibla, but just far enough away from the more crowded areas in Ibla to be quiet. Plus it is close enough to Ragusa Superiore to allow us to walk there, as well. The hospitality provided by the owning sisters, Laura and Tiziana, was par excellence, helping us often with arrangements while we were there, but also answering the many, many questions I asked during my vacation planning phase. What is most amazing is the value. We paid almost 4 times as much for rooms in other areas of Sicily and this experience was just as enjoyable and satisfying. Thank you, Laura & Tiziana.

What a wonderful location. Near the bottom of the steps that separate new town from old, just around the corner from a great restaurant which the hotel recommended. We walked from the bus station, it took about 25 mins but it was all downhill. The only part that was a bit difficult was going down the steps at the end but only because we had hand luggage and it was hot and sunny. If you have a car, there is parking close by and the hotel will meet you and escort you to the hotel from there. We had booked the vacation home, and it was a split level, kitchen in the front and bed on the lower level, with a small terrace and window overlooking the view of Ragusa, how stunning. Our room could not have been more comfortable, great towels. Reception was terrific, check-in so easy, welcome drink upon arrival after our walk from bus station, appreciated. Note, the hotel had offered to arrange a taxi for our arrival, we chose to use the service for our departure as it was a bit of a rainy day, and only cost 10 Euro, service was prompt. Breakfast was perfect, typical cold cuts and cheese, tomato, olives and boiled eggs, yogurt and cereal, fruit. Excellent quality. Lovely selection of Sicilian cookies and Monica chocolate. So easy to walk anywhere in the old town from this location, corner after corner reveals another marvellous view of this spectacular town.
