Province of Caltanissetta

Delia provides a wide variety of events and traditional festival in summer.

Delia has ancient origins dating back to the Arab period. Due to the massive presence of vineyard, Arabs called this village “Daliyah” which refers to the wine cultivations. The current old town centre was founded in 1271 and it displays the typical traits of the medieval town.

The most important monuments of Delia are the Sabuci Castle; the Church of Madonna del Carmelo, built in 1601 by Baron Gaspare Lucchese with a Neoclassical and Gothic style, is characterised by a huge main entrance made with the typical local white limestones; The Mother Church, built in 1300,  has a Neoclassical facade with a late Baroque entrance and ring bell; The Church of Sant’Antonio includes five impressive Baroque chapels with carved wooden altars.
