You feel a strange sensation along the small streets of the ancient village of Carcaci.

At first you expect to meet with some villagers who sprout from some corner, then little by little you notice the abandoned houses, then you realize that you can only imagine the life that took place here.

Except for the presence of a private castle, Carcaci has become a ghost town.

We have news of this place since 1061; here the Normans camped to prepare the siege of Centuripe.

It probably dates back to that time a quadrangular tower, later incorporated into other buildings.

Over the centuries various feudal lords alternated, until Gonsalvo Romeo Gioieni, in 1631, obtained the 'licentia populandi' and founded the village.

Carcaci later passed to the Paternò Castello.

The village was built in Baroque style, with a monumental entrance, an elegant church and a castle.

The inhabitants lived on the cultivation of rice, hemp and flax.

In 1818 Carcaci was a village of 150 inhabitants, and became common; in 1952 it also had its own railway station, which was then closed in 1986.

It is currently in a state of almost total abandonment.
