Gibil Gabib

This name, which means “mountain of the dead” brings us quickly back to Arab Sicily, when the Muslims found several necropoli here (still visible). This site is about 5 kilometers from Caltanissetta, on a hill and it was inhabited since prehistoric times. The excavations have yielded numerous artifacts such as prehistoric flints, pottery, household items, dishes, lamps, a clay statue of a female deity, a clay head…At the foot of the hill extends two necropoli that gave us Siceliot (Greek) pottery boxes with red figures.
Few, but still exciting, the ruins visible on the three terraces of this site.
