Where we are

Caltagirone, a land of extraordinary beauty and rich in culture, has always been a popular tourist destination for people from all over the world.

Cradle of the Baroque, the historic center achieved the title of World Heritage Site by UNESCO in June 2002.

Mild climate, monuments, good food and maiolics are the main features that make this town as a jewel in the heart of the Island.

The city is rich in archaeological sites, churches, works of art and monuments for example the façade of the church of San Pietro, the Ventimiglia balcony, the entrance to the Ceramics Museum and, in more recent times, the staircase of Santa Maria del Monte and the Monumental Cemetery, some Liberty villas that the local aristocracy built around the city.

The precious Caltagirone nativity scenes are represented with scenes of popular life, with a great simplicity and meticulous attention to detail. The spectacular Moro’s Heads are the perfect combination of art, legend and culture that tell of a land rich in tradition and beauty.
