Castello Cavica is a charming and comfortable Villa, located in the famous area of Val di Noto, cradle of the late-baroque art and architecture, more exactly in the land of Modica, city part of the Unesco world heritage site.

The location of Castello Cavica allows you easy access to the golden beaches of Pozzallo, Sampieri, S. Lorenzo, Cala Mosche, as well as the natural oisis of Vendicari and also the Southern extremity of Sicily with its sea town of Portopalo of Capo Passero (at a distance of about 15-35 Km).

From here it’s also easy to reach the charming baroque-cities of Ragusa, Scicli and Noto (at about 15-30 Km). Taking the highway you can also easily reach the cities of Siracusa and Catania. Given the location of the villa, it's advised to have your own means of transportation.

Interesting species of flora and fauna typical for the Mediterranean rupestral environment are largely represented in this area : no small wonder for you if it happens to see a peregrine falcon flying up in the sky or to meet a porcupine walking undisturbed between asparagus and wild fennel plants!

History

Castello Cavica was built in 1954 and was meant to provide decent life conditions to the countryside peasants which used to live inside the rocky caverns of the so called “Castello” even in the early post second world war period.

The background of this scenery is the famous cave, a majestic and picturesque valley characterized by the typical Mediterranean vegetation. The cave is an archaeological area sprinkled with various testimonies that sustain the continuity and the evolution of the human being during the centuries: prehistoric necropolises, christian catacombs, rupestral oratories and various dwellings.

Between the last ones, there is the aforementioned Castello, a residential complex, several storeys high, connected between them by interior steps cut in the walls, with cavities permitting the climbing.
