Mirabella Imbaccari

Province of Catania

Mirabella Imbaccari is a charming little village rich in history and traditions. 

Mirabella Imbaccari was founded by Don Giuseppe Paternò Baron of Raddusa  in 1610 when he obtained the permission (Licentia Populandi) by King Filippo III of Spain to built the feudal town calling it by the name of his wife: Mirabella. Later, Giuseppe Paternò succeeded to his father and created the old town centre of the village adding the name “Imbaccari” in 1862.  The village has some main cultural attractions such as the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie which is considered as one of the well preserved example of Sicilian Baroque style in the area; Palazzo Biscari is an ancient building characterized by impressive Baroque decorations. It is a very huge construction with a courtyard that hosts a vegetable garden and a garden. Its interior includes many large rooms that were once used as kitchen, food storages and warehouses . In the majestic bedroom of the Biscari couple there is the Chapel of the Sisters where you can admire an artistic altar carved in walnut and two precious highly decorated bronze candelabra.
