History, Landscape, and Man

Monte San Calogero faces the gulf of Termini Imerese. Its name probably derives from the fact that its territory, extending between Caccamo and Termini, was populated by the so-called "calogheri", that is hermits choosing to live their holiness in the silence and loneliness of those lands. These hermits were worshiped by the local people: this devotion gave origin to the worship of St Calogero.
