The south east of Sicily is the heart of the Sicilian Barocco (Baroque) with its unique architectural identity. Noto, Caltagirone, Catania, Ragusa, Modica, Scicli and particularly Acireale contain some of Italy's best examples of Baroque architecture, carved in the local red sandstone. Noto provides one of the best examples of the Baroque architecture brought to Sicily.
The Baroque style in Sicily was largely confined to buildings erected by the church, and palazzi built as private residences for the Sicilian aristocracy. By the middle of the 18th century, Sicily's Baroque architecture was noticeably different from that of the mainland. The eight towns in south-eastern Sicily: Caltagirone, Militello Val di Catania, Catania, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo, Ragusa and Scicli represent a considerable collective undertaking, successfully carried out at a high level of architectural and artistic achievement. Keeping within the late Baroque style of the day, they also depict distinctive innovations in town planning and urban building.
Canicattini Bagni (Sicilian: Janiattini) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Syracuse, Sicily (Italy), located in the heart of the World Heritage Sites of the Val do Noto. Its name derives from the Arabic Ayn-at-tin ('muddy spring'). The appositive Bagni ('baths' in Italian) refers to the territory once belonging to the Danieli noblemen, lords of the Bagni fiefdom. Canicattini Bagni borders with the municipality of Noto, the world heritage site for the Sicilian Barocco.
