Chiesa del Bambino

Situated in a valley of citrus plantations, Fiumefreddo di Sicilia boasts a conspicuous production of citrus fruits and vegetables, exhibited during the annual Fair held in the month of February. The handicraft activity is characterized by the production of wrought iron objects.

The name Fiumefreddo derives from the homonymous river characterized by frozen waters deriving from mountain Etna's melting snow.

The appositive di Sicilia was added in 1862 to distinguish it from the town of Fiumefreddo Bruzio, in the province of Cosenza.

The first inhabited center rose in 1400, around a farmhouse that was property of the Parisio family. Approximately in 1600, it belonged to the lords Gravina Cruyllas, already owners of the feud of Calatabiano, who increased the growth of the town's population and economy.

The Mother Church

It was governed by this noble family until the abolition of the feudal regime.

Architecturally, the most interesting monuments are the Chiesa Madre dedicated to S. Maria Immacolata, the Palazzetto Diana rich of black lava-stone inlays, and the Castello degli Schiavi (castle of the slaves), built in 1700 by will of the Gravina family, over the remains of an ancient Roman villa.
