Fiumedinisi is a medieval village located in the valley of the same name, on the eastern side of the Peloritani mountains.
It is believed that this area has been inhabited by the Siculi since ancient times. It was some Greek colonists coming from Chalcis and attracted by the rich mineral deposits who founded the colony of Nisa in the 7th century BC. It stood on a plain above the current town, at the foot of Mount Belvedere where it is believed there was a temple dedicated to the Greek god Dionysus. The current inhabited center arose with the birth of the Kingdom of Sicily and took the name of Flumen Dionisyi.
Today the small village of Fiumedinisi preserves its identity as a medieval village intact through its dense structure road, the small streets, the underpasses, the courtyards, the stone portals, its churches and its castle.
