Area: Messina surroundings
Its origin is shrouded in myth: it is said that Agatirso, the ancient Naso, was founded in 1218 BC by the hand of Agathirnos, son of the God of Aeolus winds. In the early Middle Ages, Naso acquired greatness and power thanks to the dominion of the Ventimiglia feudal lords: it first received the title of county and then of city. Between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries it was hit by numerous earthquakes that razed a large part of the city, the old castle and part of the city walls. The current appearance of the city is in fact due to the reconstructions carried out following these earthquakes.
Naso hides works of art of considerable artistic value and is a destination for pilgrimages for being the birthplace of San Cono, patron saint of the city.
