History
Petrantica, built in 1642, began life as a staging post, a place of refreshment for couriers on horseback from Syracuse, carrying the mail into the Ragusa area, along the ancient “Elosine” way built by the Greeks to connect Syracuse to Camarina. These old staging posts were typically located 10–15 km apart, more or less the distance horsemen could travel in a day, to carry military orders from one part of the territory to another. Later, these staging posts became inns or storehouses, stopovers where coachmen and passengers could spend the night, change or rest the horses or repair any damage to the carriages. The structure consisted of stables, workshops for the farrier, kitchens and lodgings where the horsemen rested overnight. It was later used as a farm for breeding cattle and growing crops in the surrounding fields. In 2007, it was restored by the Lo Presti family, faithfully to its origins, to give new life to this ancient building of high historical and cultural value and to preserve its original function of conviviality and hospitality.
