Santa Elisabetta

Province of Agrigento

Santa Elisabetta is an ancient village with a fascinating old town centre. 

The village of Santa Elisabetta was conquered by Byzantine in 535 BC and later by Arabs and Normans. In 1305 the area was included in the proprieties of Baron Bartolomeo Montaperto and in 1620 Nicola Montaperto started the construction of the current old downtown centre. The most important monuments of the village are the Mother Church of Santo Stefano characterised by an amazing facade made with the local stone; the Church of Sant’Antonio, built in 1860; Mount Guastanella includes an interesting archaeological area where it is possible to visit the Keli necropolis dating back to the Roman-Byzantine period; the Chiaromonte Castle is a fortress built in the 4th century.
