According to some philologists the word Scicli comes from the Greek Sikla, which means  milk pail, referring to the rich zootechnical production in the area. Numerous archaeological findings testify the presence of human beings already in ancient times. During the centuries Scicli was conquered by Arabs, Normans and Aragonese. With the latter, it was part of the County of Modica. During the 14th century, the settlement, originally situated on the hill of S. Matteo, gradually developed towards the plain below, and therefore the new feud was  here created. The town was later modified because of the earthquake in 1693.
