Cammarata is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Agrigento in the Italian region Sicily, located about 60 km southeast of Palermo and about 35 km north of Agrigento on the eponymous mountain (1,578 m) in a territory rich of forests.
The name derives from the Greek Kàmara, meaning "vaulted room". The town is mentioned for the first time in 1141 in a document mentioning several Arabic localities, a sign that it was settled at least from the Islamic domination of the island.
The county of Cammarata followed the history of Sicily under the Normans, the Hohenstaufen and the War of the Vespers. In 1397 the count rebelled and the town was besieged by Bernardo Cabrera, general of king Martin II of Sicily. Later it was a fief of the Abatellis.
