Area: Agrigento surroundings

The village of Aragona stands on the eastern slopes of Mount Belvedere, in the Platani Valley, in an area characterized by the presence of hundreds of sulfur mines.
The village of Aragona was founded on 6 January 1606 thanks to the licentia populandi obtained by Baldassare III Naselli. The Nasellis governed the town of Aragon until 1812, the year in which feudalism was abolished.
Today the village of Aragon preserves historic buildings and works of notable historical and artistic interest. The village, however, is mainly known for the volcanoes of Macalube, a protected natural area in Sicily which includes a vast clayey territory characterized by the presence of eruptive phenomena.
