Province of Messina

Brolo is a tiny medieval village located in the province of Messina.

The name Brolo derives from the Latin word “Brolium” which means “park”. According to the tradition the village was found by the noble family Primati di Sicilia in the 11th century around the Castle which was erected to protect the area from the violent pirates invasions.
The current old town centre was built by the marquess Longarino in the 17th century. The most important monuments of the village are the Mother Church SS. Annunziata, the Mother Church, erected in 1764 and the Castle, built in 1246, housed Princess Bianca Lancia, the future wife of Emperor Frederick II.

The old town centre also include the Museo delle Fortificazioni Marine and the Torture Museum. Thanks to its beautiful Lungomare and its restaurants and cafe, the village provides a lively night during the summer time.
