Beautiful people, today I want to show you a really curious archaeological area located between Buccheri and Giarratana 🙂
The archaeological area in question is Casmene, a former Syracusan colony founded in 644 BC, to militarily control and defend the central eastern area of ​​Sicily from a possible advance of Gela from the West to the East.
The same story was repeated 46 years later, with the foundation of Kamarina on the southeastern coast of the island, in order to protect the coastal area from a possible advance from the West.
