Naro is a small but surprising medieval and baroque jewel in the province of Agrigento, not far from the Greek Temple Valley. As a hill town it offers stunning sceneries with views from the surrounding hills to the sea.
The monumental city has a very ancient history, from the Sicani, the most ancient inhabitants of the island, to the Arabs, the Normans, the Swabians and the Spaniards. We can find remnants of their presence everywhere: from the ancient city gate, the only one left from the seven gates, to the mosque changed into a Norman Duomo by Earl Ruggero. Other witnesses of these passages are the ancient Jewish quarter and the Medieval Chiaramonte Castle which rises on the top of the city and hosts a picturesque exhibition of splendid women’s dresses dating back to the 800s and which belonged to the noblewomen of Naro.
