Manfria, named after the homonym medieval coastal tower, grew in the second half of the 20th Century. It received the official status of frazione after a municipal law of 24 January 2006.
Manfria is a sea resort located on the Mediterranean coast, 12 km-far from Gela and 27 from Licata. It is composed by two inhabited areas, Manfria (western area) and Lido Manfria, in the east. The village is separated from Marina di Butera, a frazione of Butera, by the course of the river Comunelli.
Tower of ManfriaEdit
The Tower of Manfria (Torre di Manfria, also named "Sferracavallo") is located upon a hill between the western area and Lido. It was part of a net of Sicilian coastal towers, built following the project of the Florentine architect Camillo Camilliani.
