Growing region

Village / Growing region: Caltabellotta in Italy / Sicily

Caltabellotta in Sicily is located northwest of Agrigento at an elevation of 949 meters. Caltabellotta has about 3,900 inhabitants. The main economic sector for the inhabitants of Caltabellotta is agriculture. Caltabellotta is known for the cultivation of high-quality olives, excellent wine, and delicious citrus fruits.

In 2010, I, Nicolo Cottone (WIKI) from Solingen, was appointed as the ambassador of Caltabellotta. A great honor for me.


In the center of the beautiful town of Caltabellotta, the town hall is located at Piazza Umberto, and on the other side stands the Carmine Church. Inside the Carmine Church is the statue of the Virgin Mary by Antonello Gagini from the year 1534. The Church of Carmine has been shining in new light since it was restored in 1950.

At the ancient parish church of Maria SS. Assunta, dating back to the year 1300, one can enjoy a beautiful view over the entire valley. The church is particularly notable for its geometric design with its pointed arch portal. In 2001, the church was completely renovated, and since then, services have been held there again.

An interesting feature is the staircase carved into the rock, which leads up to the ruins of the castle. The ruins date back to the Norman period and have been structurally altered multiple times over the decades. The unique aspect of this castle is that it was the site where the famous Peace Treaty of Caltabellotta was signed in 1302 between Frederick II of Aragon and Charles of Valois, thus ending the Sicilian Vespers. Consequently, Sicily came under the rule of the House of Aragon.
