Some history of San Vito Lo Capo

About the human presence at San Vito Lo Capo there are testimonies dating back to the year 1000 b.c., thanks to some historical finds recovered inside the many caves carved in the cliffs of which the coast is rich. Other remains of underground burials dating back to a later period confirm the presence of settlements of a sedentary nature. The story of San Vito Lo Capo is linked in every way to San Vito Martire, a young man who to escape the rigors of yet another persecution ordered by Diocletian (303-304), and the anger of father Ila and the prefect Valerian, together with his teacher Modesto and Crescenzia (the nurse), he runs away by sea from Mazara and helped by the winds he arrived at Mount Erice (Capo Egitarso for the ancients). Here he began to spread the word of God among the people of the place, but later he had to leave also from Capo Egitarso and resume, accompanied by the two educators, his pilgrimage that the portò from Sicily to Campania and then to Lucania, performing several miracles. Vito died very young on 15 June 299 A.D. (or 304 A.D.).
More and more became the faithful devoted to the Martyr Vito and they built a chapel that has been taken over the centuries and transformed into the current Sanctuary-Fortress to protect the pilgrims who went there to worship the Saint.

How San Vito Lo Capo was born

At the beginning of the '700 began to appear the first houses all around the Sanctuary and towards the end of the same century, around the church there was already a small nucleus of houses. Thus was born San Vito Lo Capo.

In the eighteenth century San Vito Lo Capo was registered at the behest of the royal government that entrusted land to anyone who wanted to reclaim them, with the obligation to reside.

The jurisdiction of Erice, of which San Vito Lo Capo was part, divided the territory into three distinct villages to live in, San Vito Lo Capo was born, Macari and Castelluzzo. It took another 150 years for San Vito Lo Capo to detach from Erice becoming an autonomous Municipality thanks to a Regional law of 1952, was born so the Municipality of San Vito Lo Capo with the adjoining fractions of Macari and Castelluzzo.
