Its origins date back to the 1st century. A.D. and are linked to those of the ancient city of Tyndaris: according to some historians, including Pliny the Elder, a catastrophic earthquake and a terrible landslide destroyed Tyndaris and forced its inhabitants to settle in a safe place, the current Oliveri. Subsequent historical information dates back to the Norman domination: between 1061 and 1195 the feud of Liveri was established, the period in which its castle was built.
In the past, the village was famous for its tonnara, the largest and most famous in Sicily.
Today Oliveri fascinates with its splendid beaches but also its historic center offers numerous valuable historical-artistic testimonies.
