Partanna

  • Grifeo castle
Grifeo castle

Situated on a hill dominating the Belice and Modione valleys, Partanna offers the visitor suggestive views which pass over the surrounding green plains to the faraway maritime headlands. Like all the other towns of the Belice area, Partanna also suffered the devastating force of the earthquake of ’68. Today, however, it is a centre linked to a wine-making and vine growing activity with the production of fine wine, an important and fine olive oil, and a particular type of cheese based on sheep’s milk (Vastedda). Obligatory stops include the Castle of the ancient landowners Grifeo (which is home to a modern and suggestive Prehistoric Museum) and the recent archaeological park of Stretto district, where its network of deep Neolithic ditches has given Partanna the title of City of the Ditch Civilization.
