city of Camporotondo Etneo was founded around the mid-16th century
by the Marquis Reitano. In 1669, it was heavily damaged, like many
other villages in the Etna slopes, by the eruption of the volcano.
Only several years later and after an extensive reconstruction,
it managed to regain its original circular design (hence the name
Camporotondo, standing for “circular field”).
city economy mainly relies on agriculture, boasting notable outputs
of olive, citrus fruits and almond.
church of S. Antonio Abate is the city’s main attraction.
