A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Noto was called the "Stone Garden" by one of the most important Italian art critics Cesare Brandi. The town was originally built on Mount Alveria, 10 kilometres from Noto today. The town was rebuilt on more level ground after the big earthquake in Val di Noto in 1693.
The ruins of the old city, known as Noto Antica, are visible on the ridge of the mountainside. In the "new" town, Sicilian baroque architecture is expressed in all of its glory. With a stroll down Noto's main street, Corso Vittorio Emanuele – lined on both sides by dozens of honey-hued palaces, cathedrals and churches – it is easy to see why Noto is the considered the jewel in the heart of Eloro District.

Noto was also a set for a lot of famous Movies:
