In 2014 Ferla was admitted to the ANCI Club of “The most beautiful villages in Italy”, obtaining a well-deserved recognition for its history, traditions and cultural heritage.

The majestic baroque of the historic center, entirely rebuilt after the earthquake of 1693, is based on innovative architecture. In 1933, Italy recognized the Church of Sant’Antonio as a “national monument”, an example of a unique, “extravagant” Sicilian Baroque. Marvel is the imposing basilica dedicated to San Sebastian, patron saint of the town with its external sculptural complex inserted inside a “baroque machine” by the artist Michelangelo Di Giacomo.

The visit to the Holistic Center pays homage to the philosophy of slow living, or slow living, which since 2015 has made this village a model for experimenting with a holistic approach to the environment. A workshop with recycled material will be held here, to give a complete tourist experience that involves guests in their senses and soul.

Cassaro is the city of oil and Easter rites, par excellence. The matrix of the name could derive from the Arabic Kars, which means castle or fortress. The site was located in an area of ​​great strategic importance, near the once navigable river, the Anapo.

After the earthquake of 1693, a regular checkerboard layout was designed and religious monuments and palaces were built by the aristocracy, including the Church of Sant’Antonio Abate and the Church of San Sebastiano. The civic “Visual and Documentary Museum of the Syracusan Hyblean Plateau” is located in the eighteenth-century Palazzo Carfì. Of great value are the exhibition rooms that show vestments and sacred objects, the vestments of Mons. Luigi Bordonaro stand out, including a missal from the sixteenth century. Another room is dedicated to the almost centennial history of the “Band of Cassaro”.

The bond with the land is strong and gives its fruits in the production of an extra virgin olive oil with DOP, Monti Iblei. You will taste the tantalizing delicacies, called m’panate, tasty typical focaccias, stuffed with vegetables and cheeses.
