The Prison in Sutera

The Prison in Sutera


 Via S. Paolino - Sutera (CL)

The Prison is a monument to Sutera that dates back to the period of the Vespers War, when Philip of Anjou, Prince of Taranto and second son of the King of Naples, was taken prisoner by the French Frederick II of Aragon, following the battle of Falconara which took place in 1299. Prince Philip was first taken to the castle of Cefalù and then to the stronghold of Sutera. Following the peace, signed in Calabellotta in 1302, between the Angevins and the Aragonese, the King of Trinacria himself, namely Frederick II of Aragon, went to the village to free his ancient adversary.
