Roccapalumba is located at the foot of Mount Rocca and provides a breathtaking view of the stars. 

Roccapalumba, also known as the Village of the Stars (Paese delle Stelle), is a crucial point for international scientists and astronomy lovers. Due to its location, placed at the foot of Mount Rocca, during the night it provides a breathtaking view of the stars. For this reason you can visit the Planetarium Francesco Nicosia and the Astronomical Observatory with a telescope of 50cm. This tiny village is also renowned for the Opuntia Ficus-Indica Fest that takes place in the second half of October where you can buy and taste many varieties of prickly pears.
