Santa Venerina is a city of about 7,700 inhabitants at some 340 m a.s.l. Its economy is mostly based on agriculture, with major outputs of wine-grapes, fruit, citrus fruits and walnuts. Its name derives from Acireale’s patron saint Venera.

Inhabited since the antiquity, as show ruins of thermal baths and an ancient oratory of Roman-Byzantin origin, the area of what is now Santa Venerina was included in the territory of the neighboring Acireale as far as 1934, when it became an autonomous municipality.

The Mother Church dedicated to Santa Venera, with interesting paintings by Alessando (1720-1793) and Pietro Paolo (1697-1760) Vasta, is the best attraction of this tiny town.
