Naro is a rural ancient village which has a wonderful tiny old town centre.
The village of Naro, historically named Camico, was founded by Sicani. The village later prospered under Greek domination, who introduced many new types of cultivation that today remain the main economic activities of the village. The most important cultural attractions of Naro are:
the Church of Santa Caterina, built with yellow sandstones and three naves, includes impressive frescos made by the local artist Cecco; the Cathedral, built by Ruggiero d’Altavilla in 1089, is a Norman church characterized by a majestic entrance with 209 steps.; the Porta d’Oro, is one of the six main gate of the village built in the Middle age; the Chiaramontano Castle, erected in the 14th century by the Chiaramonte family, rises on Mount Agragante and displays a well preserved Gothic style. It was honoured with the title of National monument in 1912.
