Regalbuto is located in the centre of Sicily and it is included in the ancient Roman area known as the “umbilicus Siciliae”. Later Arabs marked this village as an ideal watershed between the Val Demone and Val di Noto. This lovely village is characterized by an incredible silence framed by a prominent vegetation.

To ensure the irrigation of the citrus of the province, the Region and State decided to build a dock which is still considered the largest in Europe: Pozzillo Lake.
