For its beach the town is considered a holiday resort, and has also very interesting monuments, such as the Palace Musso
built in art-nuveau style (beginning of the 20th century) and the Tower (14th century).
The Tower was built thanks to the initiative of Giovanni Bernardo Cabrera, Count of Modica. It is 30 metres tall with sentry boxes and loop-holes: no ship or man could escape. The earthquake in 1693 destroyed the tower, which actually was soon rebuilt as pirate raids were more and more frequent. That time a platform was added. Today it is a National Monument as well as the town’s coat of arms and symbol. Villas and lodging surround the tower have magnificent views thereof.

Mount Lauro, the highest peak, reaches only 986 metres above sea level but it has an interesting history. As in Sicily's other mountain ranges, the Hybleans are predominantly limestone, though with some volcanic features.
There are woodlands in some areas. In addition to Ragusa, places of historical interest include Ragusa, Modica and Palazzolo Acreide. Cava Ispica is a spectacular canyon.
