Province of Agrigento

Cianciana is a tiny village rich in stunning ancient holy places. 

Cianciana was founded in 1646 by Sigismonda D’Onofrio who ruled the town with her son building the current old town centre. The village prospered after the discovering of many sulphur mines which transformed Cianciana in a famous industrialised place.
The most important monuments of the village are the Church of Madre Santissima Trinità, built by Baron Girolamo Ficarra in 1640; the Purgatorio Church, erected in 1716 with a Neoclassical style; the Church of Sant’Antonio, built in the 17th century, is a well preserved example of Sicilian Baroque building; the Sulphur Mines are an interesting site where it is possible to discover the history and the old economy of this village; the Necropolis of Millaga is an archaeological site where visitors can discover the ruins of an ancient Roman necropolis.
