Our morning in Ragusa kicked off a day filled with beautiful, bright baroque architecture. The Duomo in Ragusa is at the top of a hill, boasting the dramatic architecture of its time. The Entasis or bulge of the columns, the fancy Corinthian capitals, and the curvature of the front all show an exaggerated flair of the time. These features, combined with its clever position and bright impact in the sun makes the Duomo a shining crown of the city. Later, while wandering the streets of Ragusa, we passed by this graffiti.
Even though we are not technically studying our own culture, it’s nice that we’re at least growing some roots in a place with such rich architecture, history, and people committed to its culture.
