The locality was inhabited from ancient times as evidenced by numerous caves used to Laure Basilian in the Middle Ages and a shelter for fishermen in below. The origins of the name are uncertain: è perhaps datable to the land reclamation in the XI century included the area by calling "new" wooded areas and stony making them habitable. The existence of a number of springs of fresh water made Novaglie one locality strategic for the Saracen pirates who went to refuel. Since the antiquity the coast of Novaglie was used as a point for the mooring of boats and ships, as evidenced by the toponym Porto Vecchio given to the stretch of coast più to the north-east. Novaglie hosts two ancient laure basilian in the area of the new harbor, dug into the rock from two Natural caves; used in time as a shelter for boats, we can discern in them writing stroke graffito scratched. There is also a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows dating back to the XX century, forming part of a private residence. The main caves of costa novagliese, from north to south there are the following:
From 2013 the ancient sheep track that from Novaglie led to Gagliano del Capo skirting the two caves has been managed and opened to the public as trail; through it it's possibile to access to the two upper chambers of Cipolliane.
