Ragusa Ibla, Italy

Photograph by Patrick Love, Redux

Ragusa Ibla, a hill town restored by its inhabitants after a 1693 earthquake to its original medieval appearance, is one of the most appealing and atmospheric old quarters in Sicily. The town's warren of tiny streets is full of baroque and other buildings of ramshackle and wonderfully faded charm.
