Wine town

The name of the town comes from the Sicilian “Và ranni”, which translates into “via grande” or big street, referring to the main road that leads from Catania to Messina. Casks of wine were carried along this road by the so-called “carramatti” (four-wheeled carts dragged by mules).

The origins of the current town date back to the urban settlement on the lava in 1408. In 1641 Domenico di Giovanni bought the estates of Trecastagni, Zafferana and Viagrande and was invested as Prince by King Philip IV of Spain. The territory later became baronial feud of the Alliata family, gaining full independence in 1817.

Monuments include the Chiesa Madre, a Baroque construction devoted to the cult of San Mauro Abate, celebrated with devotion on 15th January every year, and the very special villas with their lively lava stone portals, some of which are now open as B&B ( Palazzo Mirone/ Deodato – Villa Manganelli – Palazzo Carcaci – La Casa dei Marchesi di San Giuliano).

An important naturalistic itinerary is represented by the Mount Serra Park, an old volcanic cone where the flora and fauna are now protected.
Important attractions within the Park are the Butterfly House, unique in central-southern Italy, and the synthetic ski run and tubing course.
Also worth remembering is the “MuLa”, Lava Museum, a project which enables visitors to find out more about the world and history of volcanoes thanks to multimedia equipment, 3D representations and theme rooms.
