The village of Sutera, in Sicily, develops around the mountain of San Paolino. It is composed of three districts Rabato, Rabatello and Giardinello. The district of Rabato is characterized by old plastered chalets, one with another, with narrow lanes, courtyards or steep staircases.

They are worth a visit to the Sanctuary of St. Paolino, located on the summit of Mount St. Paolino and reachable on foot via a staircase, and the Ethno-anthropological Museum. In the surrounding villages there are several hills particularly suitable for trekking and hiking lovers, such as Colle San Marco, Santa Croce, and xacca, or the slit. The latter is called so as it is split into two portions distanced several tens of meters from each other, but interconnected. Legend has it that this rupture was formed when Jesus died on the cross.

Noteworthy is the Living Nativity that is organized every year in the neighborhood of Rabato. There are still other cultural events (advertised on the municipal institutional site) such as exhibitions, conferences, and book publications. For many years, some of the solfares (Tenuta, Zorra di Martino and Abate Daughter), owned by the Benedictine Fathers of Palermo, have been operating in Cimicia.

In 1987, US director Michael Cimino turned to Sutera as part of his film The Sicilian, which tells the story of the bandit Salvatore Giuliano (played by Christopher Lambert).
