Area: Messina surroundings

Frazzanò is a small village dominated by a Basilian monastery of rare beauty. The village, surrounded by mountains and valleys, immersed in a beech forest, is also known as the Village of the Beech Trees.
Its origins date back to 835 when it was founded by a group of refugees from the Roman/Byzantine city of Cractus. It then became, in 1453, a fief of the Filangeri family until it achieved its independence in 1700.
Frazzanò still today retains a typically medieval layout with an urban fabric made up of narrow streets, houses leaning against each other, small squares and churches.
