Province of Ragusa

Scicli is considered as one of the most important treasure of Sicily.

Scicli is a majestic Baroque village, its old town centre has been declared World Heritage in 2002 by UNESCO with Val di Noto. This charming and fascinating village is widely renowned for some important celebrations like Festa delle Milizie, a long-week celebration honouring the 1091 battle for the liberation of Sicily from the Saracens;  Il Gioia is the celebration of Christ’s Resurrection, taking place on Easter Day, called Uomo Vivo. The wooden Christ statue is paraded along the town’s streets and people make it sway and dance around as a sign of joy all day long and the Cavalcata di San Giuseppe which is a medieval commemoration. Otherwise Scicli offers a long series of festivals as the Tomato Festival, Basole di Luce Festival, Carnaluvaru ra Stratanova,  that is accompanied by performances, parades and allegorical floats.
Scicli has a really long coast, with two promontories which characterise a wide sandy bay extending to Sapieri’s residential area. Continuing on the coastal road it is possible to find the Nature Reserve of Costa di Carro and the Cava d’Alga with its low and sandy coast.
