The castle on Mount Xibet was called by the arabs "Qalat-al-Xibet", hence the current name of Calascibetta.

The town still maintains a medieval system despite the baroque that distinguishes it from the earthquake of 1693.

The village is at an altitude of 800 meters above sea level, and its territory was inhabited already in ancient times.

In the Middle Ages it was chosen by both the arabs and the norman Ruggero D'Altavilla as a base from which to take the long sieges of Enna, which is just over a kilometer and a half as the crow flies.

His most flourishing period was that of the aragonese kings, who preferred it to stay there; Peter II died there.

Even the Jews lived here, in an entire neighborhood that was in the current Via Giudea.

Calascibetta has in its territory several very important and characteristic archaeological sites.

Although it is an unknown village to mass tourism, it has a charm to be discovered and is a must-see place.
