He died here of old age in 1101. Roger's son and also a Count of Sicily, Simon died in the town in 1105, when he was 12 years old.Simon's brother and successor Roger II was born here in 1095.

He became the first King of Sicily in 1130.In 1807 it was the location of the Battle of Mileto between the French and Neapolitan armies.
