Tripi is an ancient village which includes impressive archaeological findings dating back to the Greek domination. 

The village of Tripi was founded in 1061 by Roberto il Guiscardo on the wonderful ruins of Abacaenum, an ancient Greek City. Later the feudal town was ruled by some of the most notable families in Sicily such as Lancia, Partori, Alagona, Villarant, Gaetano and Marini. The most important holy places of the village are the Church of San Biagio; the Mother Church, dedicated to S. Vincenzo Martire di Spagna; the Church of SS.Trinità and Rosario which includes impressive works of art dating back to the 16th century and the Church of Annunziata, built in the 17th century. Among its impressive old town centre it is possible to visit the Santi Furnari Archaeological Museum where you can admire a permanent collection of funerary objects found in the necropolis of the ancient city of Abakainon located in the Cardusa district and the Castle, built in 1154 as a stronghold.
