Area: Taormina surroundings
Roccafiorita is a small village nestled on the slopes of Mount Kalfa, in the Valle d'Agrò area.
The first human settlements date back to Roman times as evidenced by the numerous traces found in this area. It has been hypothesized that the foundation of Roccafiorita dates back to the 1st century BC, a time in which the inhabitants of Taormina tried in vain to rebel against the Romans and decided to abandon their land and disperse into the nearby districts, settling on the slopes of Mount Kalfa.< br>The current town was founded in 1610 by the Marquis of Limina, Pietro Balsamo, who decided to found a town in the fiefdom of which he was the owner. With the abolition of feudalism in Sicily, in 1817, Roccafiorita was established as an autonomous municipality.
Today the symbol of this village, surrounded by the splendid nature of the Valle D'Agrò, is the Sanctuary dedicated to the Madonna dell'Aiuto.< /p>
