The city of Santa Croce Camerina  

The Town Hall is located in via Carmine n. 95, tel. ++39 0932-911288/911020 fax. ++39 0932-911020.  

It is mainly an agricultural centre and it grows cereals, vegetables, citrus fruits, olives, carobs and hothouse flowers.  

This little town takes its name from Giovan Battista Celestri, Marquis of Santa Croce, who repopulated it in 1598 after being abandoned because of  many piratical incursions.

The word "Camerina" comes instead by a Syracuse colony, Camarina, whose inhabitants founded the present day S.Croce when their town was destroyed.

In 1470 baron Pietro Celestri received the land in emphyteusis.
