With the closure of the Ponte Guerrieri for 3 months, the usual passeggiata of the statue of St Peter will not take place this year in Modica. The entire week of celebrations for the towns patron saint will be very low key – and take place entirely inside the Duomo as the roads cannot be closed this year.
From Monday 16 June the bridge will be closed and traffic from Siracuas and pozzallo direction Ragusa will use the central Corso Umberto in one way only. FOr traffic coming from Ragusa to the east and south,. there will be a one way system introduced taking traffic through the upper quarters of Dente. Be sure to add at least 30 minutes to your journey time.
