Area: Central Sicily

Grammichele is a charming town whose peculiar characteristic is its urban plan: a perfect hexagon.
In ancient times it was the city of Occhiolà, later destroyed by the earthquake of 1693, and boasted a strategic position on the hill of Terravecchia dominating the entire valley that extends from Etna to Caltagirone. After the earthquake, it was rebuilt at the behest of Prince Carlo Maria Carafa Branciforti. The attention in the reconstruction project was not simply focused on the urban plan but endowed the city with beautiful monuments that still adorn the main square today.
The typical product of Grammichele's gastronomic tradition is the sausage.
