Province of Catania

Ramacca is a tiny village rich in history where it is possible to visit the ancient Mount Ramacca.  

The village of Ramacca was founded between 1710 and 1712 by Sancio Gravina. His son, Ottavio, rebuilt the old town centre after a violent earthquake which completely destroyed the village. The most important cultural attractions of the village are the Archaeological Museum; the Mother Church which was built in the 18th century on the ruins of an ancient sixteenth century church. The interior has one nave and the presbytery was made with a marble floor and contains the old main altar with a polychrome marble tabernacle; the Church of San Giuseppe has one nave enriched by impressive stuccos and paintings.

Close to the village it is possible to visit Mount Ramacca which is a limestone relief from which you can enjoy a wonderful view of the island. The mount displays a collection of archaeological findings dating back to the Neolithic and Bronze Ages.
