Sabucina in the land of Caltanisetta

The shrines of the goddesses at the crossroads of civilization


On a mountain, 8 km north-east of the city of Caltanissetta is located the archaeological site of Sabucina. Strategic place for excellence, was the scene of a significant cultural crossroads between the ancient Greek colonists and the indigenous people, which gave rise to a mixture of religious and artistic traditions, whose sanctuaries of chthonic deities are the main symbol.
