Area: Siracusa surroundings
The origin of the village is very ancient: the first historical records date back to the Arab period, the era to which the ancient castle dates back. Only a few works of the castle remain today which survived the two earthquakes of 1542 and 1693. Following the Val di Noto earthquake of 1693, the stones that made up the ancient castle and the houses, now completely destroyed, were used to build the new homes on the site where the town of Cassaro stands today.
Cassaro boasts an important architectural heritage thanks to its historic center which preserves churches and palaces that are an expression of local Baroque art as well as a naturalistic and landscape heritage of extraordinary beauty.
