Raju’s abandoned village

By December 17, 2017 GHOST TOWNS, SICILY urbex

Born during the agrarian reform, between 1940 and 1950, Rajù’s Village had about 400 inhabitants. It was abandoned after the flood of 1972 and the subsequent flooding of the stream next to it and the tragic death of an entire family.

It was inhabited by artisans, farmers and masons. After the disaster of 1972 that made the village uninhabitable, the remaining families were forced to leave the village and they moved to neighboring countries.

Today this abandoned village is the theater of improvised airsoft battles and motocross competitions.
