Santo Stefano Quisquina

Provincia: AG - Area: Agrigento surroundings

Santo Stefano Quisquina is a small village nestled on the slopes of the Serra Quisquina.
The village was born around the Capo Favara spring during the reign of Frederick II of Aragon. In the sixteenth century, under the Barony of Ventimiglia, it reached its maximum splendor and demographic development. Numerous religious buildings date back to this period, such as the suggestive Hermitage of S. Rosalia, the place where the Palermitan Santuzza lived between 1150 and 1162.
Its territory is rich in woods, green pastures and springs of water which justify the presence of numerous drinking troughs and fountains in the town.
