Welcome to Caltanissetta
One of Sicily's nine provincial capitals, Caltanissetta is the largest city in the area. If you find yourself passing through, there's a fine central piazza to wander and, in the suburbs, a mildly interesting archaeological museum. Otherwise, Caltanissetta is a scruffy, workaday place with little obvious appeal.
The city, originally founded by the Greeks, enjoyed prosperity in the first half of the 20th century as capital of the Sicilian sulphur-mining industry and is today an important agricultural centre.
