Kamarina was founded in 597 BC from Syracuse, on a promontory not far from the mouth of the Ippari river. It was built in this area in order to have greater control of traffic with Africa and to slow down the advance towards the south from Gela.
I am talking about Macallé, a dessert that can be found throughout the region and in all the provinces of Sicily, the only difference you will find will be the type of ricotta used (if vaccinated, ovine or caprine) and the name with which the product will be presented: Macallè in the province of Ragusa, Cartoccio in the province of Catania and Palermo, while here and there can also happen to find the word Rollè!
Did you know that in Santa Croce Camerina, in addition to the very tasty macallé there are respectively an ancient thermal bath and, not far from it, a vast open-air necropolis? No?
Well, then sit back and read this short article dedicated to Santa Croce Camerina, in the Province of Ragusa
Beautiful friends, today I bring you to a very special archaeological site, unique in its kind and moreover very close to the coast 🙂
I speak of Kaukana, a housing complex dated between the 4th and 5th century AD, belonging to the so-called Late Antique period.
