In 845 it was conquered by the Normans. In the 13th and 14th centuries it was under Spanish rule under the counts of the Gualtieri family. In the following centuries this position was inherited successively by 6 other Italian families. Modica was ruled, like the rest of Sicily, by a Spanish king from
Palermo. This situation remained until the 18th century, when the island of Sicily was ruled by Vienna, and later in the late 18th and early 19th centuries it was part of the Kingdom of Sicily. Centuries ago, the Spaniards brought the cacao seed from Mexico. Since then, the tradition and ritual of obtaining chocolate at low temperature has been preserved in Modica. It is grainy, as the cocoa is processed at no more than 50 degrees and the sugar is preserved whole. But, what no one has ever dreamed of is chocolate with salt. There are many different types: with fruits and fillings, with chilli peppers, but with salt is something unique in terms of realization and taste. Visit to the workshop for demonstration and tasting.

Among them is the Palazzo Spadaro, built in the XVII-XVIII centuries with a magnificent staircase, ceramic floors from Caltagirone, frescoes and paintings with mythological characters, some of them painted by Raffaele Scalia in the 1920s and 1930s. The Spadaro family residence (a wealthy clan from Modica) has eight exquisite balconies, with ornately carved cornices and wrought-iron railings - handy for grabbing by the ladies who came out to observe life in Shikli. The Palazzo Beneventano represents a masterpiece of the human creative genius of the late Baroque period. The 18th century church of St. Vertholomew, designated as a church of rare beauty. Of great interest is the canvas on the altarpiece depicting the "Martyrdom of St. Bartholomew" by Francesco Pascucci dated 1779.
