Province of Messina

Spadafora is a charming medieval village rich in history and traditions.

The first settlement of Spadafora was funded by Greeks and later conquered by Romans and Byzantine. The current old town centre of Spadafora was created in the Middle Age, when the village prospered under the Arab and Norman dominations. In 1459 the feudal town was ruled by Federico Spadafora who gave his name to the village to honour his family. The most important monuments of the village are the Church of San Giuseppe, built in the 16th century, includes some precious sculptures made by Antonio Zuccaro in 1860; the Church of Sacro Cuore di Gesù, erected between 1937 and 1939 by Barbaro di Messina with a Romantic style; the Castle was built in the 15th century as a watchtower and later it was completely renovated in the 17th century.
