Rich of history and monuments, Naro is a big agricultural center, as it boasts a conspicuous production of grapes, wheat, olives, citrus fruits, and almonds, that can be tasted during the annual Fairs held in the months of May, June, and September. The outstanding handicraft is characterized by the art work of wooden objects and the hand made riggings. Cattle breeding is flourishing.

The name Naro derives from the Greek term Naron, that means "fiume" (river) and, in fact, the homonymous river runs nearby. The ancient center of the town was built during the XII century, over a preexistent Arab farmhouse. In 1233, King Federico II of Swabia raised the town to royal city, denominating it "fulgentissima" (splendor, brightness) because of its fortunate strategical position that allowed overlooking and dominating a vast territory. Only as of the XIII century the town walls were lifted, inside of which the current urban center was built.

Chiaramonte Castle

During the Middle Ages, the suburb belonged to the noble Chiaramonte family, responsible of the construction of some of the town's most magnificent buildings. In 1398, Naro returned to be State property, and remained so during the following centuries.

First among all monuments is the imposing Castello Chiaramonte built in 1330. Relevant are also the Matrice, dated 1300, the XVI century typically baroque Chiesa del SS. Salvatore, and the Santuario di S. Calogero, one of the most ancient sanctuaries of all Sicily, that beholds a crypt containing the statue of the Santo Nero, the town's black patron saint.
