Sciara is part of the Mount San Calogero Nature Reserve, where it is possible to discover a lush Mediterranean vegetation and some rare animal species.
Sciara was founded by Baron Filippo Notarbartolo Cipolla in 1671. He built the Castle as well as the most important buildings in the old town centre, including the Church of S.Anna, erected to honour his wife Anna Sandoval. The most important cultural attractions of Sciara are the two Churches of Sant’Anna, the first one was built with a Neo-Gothic style, the second is now the modern Church of Sciara, and includes impressive works of art created by the Sicilian artist Emilio Tadini. Close to the village in Mount Castellaccio Archaeological area, it is possible to discover many impressive ruins dating back to the 5th and 6th century. This tiny village is part of the Mount San Calogero Nature Reserve.
