In this locality, which is in fact called "Case Romane", there are two old buildings, which can be reached by following a rather difficult pathway.
The difficult access to the Case Romane site was not casual, as it was conceived as a military garrison for the Roman rulers with strategic and defensive functions over the Egadi archipelago; in fact from Case Romane, the islands of Favignana and Levanzo can easily be seen.
One of the two buildings is of a military type and was built for defensive purposes.
Considered to be from the late Roman Republican period, it most probably hosted the allocation of a small garrison of ancient Romans, who ruled Marettimo and the Egadi Islands from 241 AD
The Roman houses had a complex system that allowed the collection of water. Some sources speculate that the building was converted into a monastery during the Vandal persecutions. The other building in the Case Romane site is a Byzantine church, which dates to the early Christian centuries.
