Province of Agrigento

Sciacca is one of the most important Baroque villages of the province of Agrigento. 

The village of Sciacca is well known for its impressive Baroque old town centre. Its charming location allows visitor to discover an impressive natural environment typical of the area. The village has ancient origins probably dating back to the Greek domination. Thanks to its abundance of hot spring, Greeks named the village “Therma” and later Sacca. The most important monuments of the village are:
the Church of Santa Maria delle Giummare, founded at the beginning of 12th century by the Norman countess Giulietta, shows a wonderful facade enriched by a Gothic-Catalan style and precious Baroque decorations;
the Church of Carmine, dedicated to San Salvatore, was built in 1200 by Count Roger. The facade is characterized by a majestic Gothic rose window and Norman decorations. The interior includes a number of frescos and sculptures from the 15th and 19th century; the Church of San Calogero, built in the 16th century and later renovated in the 17th century, displays a gorgeous facade made with the local limestones; the Luna Castle is a medieval building erected in 1380 by Guglielmo Peralta, count of Caltabellotta which rises on the highest part of the village where visitors can admire a beautiful view of Sciacca.
