Sutera is a charming medieval village that is part of the circuit of the most beautiful villages in Italy. It is one of the stages of the Magna Via Francigena, an ancient itinerary that already in the 11th century connected Palermo to Agrigento.
Perched on Mount San Paolino, the village of Sutera is called "Balcony on Sicily" for the splendid view and the views that can be admired from the top of the mountain.
The name "Sutera" derives from the Greek word "sotér" which means " savior". It is a name with which the inhabitants have in history considered the mountain that protects them. According to legend, Sutera has mythological origins that attribute its foundation to Daedalus, a famous Athenian architect who escaped from the labyrinth of Crete and was hosted in Sicily by sovereign Cocalo.
The medieval urban center is made up of three districts Rabato, Rabatello and Giardinello. It unwinds in a harmonious and natural way around the San Paolino mountain.
