VITTORIA

 

 

Its territory, the plain of Vittoria, was defined by the Greeks "Plaga Mesopotamica sicula". It was located between two rivers "Ippari" and "Dirillo". The city was founded on a very fertile surface, now known as district "Boscopiano". In the south of the city lies the nature reserve "Pino d'Aleppo", along the river Ippari up to its mouth. Vittoria looks over the chanel of Sicily between the cities of Ragusa and Acate. While on the other side are Comiso and Chiaramonte Gulfi the neighboring communities.

COMISO

 

For nearly four centuries Comiso has been ruled by the family Naselli (1453-1812). However, the architecture of the city is attributed to the eighteenth century, as the province of Ragusa was rebuilt after the catastrophic earthquake in 1693.

The craft of stone processing, the so-called Comisostone (yellow marble-like limestone) is among the most important economic source of the city.

The town hall square is the "Piazza Fonte Diana" (fountain Diana). Here took place the storage of water for the Roman thermal baths

(II. Century AD).

Under the current city hall, we still find traces of the ancient Romans. The mosaic floor, which decorates the hall is still located in the library.

In May 2013, the new airport of Comiso was opened. Now it is really very easy to visit us in Scoglitti, even for a weekend getaway!
