The Location 

The Giubiliana hermitage (13th and 16th centuries) is located south of Ragusa where the plateau is covered with carob trees and slopes gently towards the sea; facing the islands of Malta and the African coast, a horizon full of charm and memory.

The Giubiliana is probably the only hotel in Sicily with an archaeological site inside; in the northern part of the park, there is a Necropolis from the 5th – 3rd century BC

In fact, the ancient and persistent anthropization of the site dates back to the late Bronze Age with cave tombs on the north side of Cava Renna.

The rooms have been realised in what were once the monks’ chambers and are equipped with every modern comfort.
