A charming mountain center, Centuripe is outstanding for the production of wheat, citrus fruits, olives, and fruit, exhibited during the annual Agriculture Fair, held in the month of September.

The origin of the name Centuripe is uncertain: perhaps it is related to the ancient Greek colony of Kentoripa, of the IV century B.C..

It was conquered by the Romans, who transformed it into a flourishing economical and cultural center.

Under the Aragonese and Angevin dynasties, the suburb was destroyed and all of the inhabitants were deported.

Castle of Corradino

Only in 1548, the town experienced a strong renewal as it was rebuilt by will of Count Adernò Francesco Moncada. His noble family owned the town until the abolition of the feudal rights.

The outstanding monuments are the Chiesa Madre (Mother Church) dedicated to the Immaculate Conception of the XVII century, and the Castle of Corradino, of the Imperial era.

The territory hosts several archeological areas, such as the Difesa area, seat of a Roman construction, the Bagni area, home of the remains of a thermal bath station of the Imperial era, and the Panneria district, home of remains from the Hellenic period.
