In this place, on a lava rock, from 11 May 1986 until 1 May 1988, the Madonna appeared to a teenager named Rosario Toscano.
She introduced herself as the "Queen of Peace".
The apparitions followed one another on a monthly basis, and at each apparition, at noon on the first day of each month, there was an ever-increasing crowd of faithful and onlookers.
This place, despite being a lava sciara, seems made to be a place of prayer and contemplation, but it is also very well suited for those who just want to take a pleasant walk in the midst of nature.
The Roccia is now a Marian shrine and an important reference point for the entire Archdiocese of Catania.
A lava cave was used as a church and a life-size nativity scene was set up in another not far away.
A construction with arches has been built around the rock, and a via crucis has been inserted along the connecting paths.
A statue of Christ with open arms was installed on a small hill.
Around there are areas equipped for the reception of the faithful.
