Small towns and villages suspended in time

The area took its name from the Sicani people, one of the first populations to arrive from the Iberian Peninsula some 4,000 years ago. The area has many natural areas but is also dotted with castles and museums that encapsulate local history and craftsmanship. The small towns and villages are suspended in time, rich in traditions linked to ancient folk rituals and populated by genuine people, just like the products they make and grow there. Simple places, full of contrasts, that can boast many of the region's excellent foods, wines and handicrafts.
