“Situated between Scopello and San Vito lo Capo it was supposed to be a national road but luckily it did not happen and it was created a natural reserve. A true paradise rich in Mediterranean macchia, flora and small fauna. Don't miss the wild white sandy beaches, know as Calette. Recommend for hiking and nature lovers.”

Iglesia
“The Cathedral of Palermo was founded by Gualtiero Offamilio, archbishop of the town from 1169 to 1190. It was a mosque in Islamic times and converted into a cathedral church by Roberto the Guiscardo after the conquest of Palermo. Its exclusive elements are the inlays and the architectural and sculptural plastic that reflects the penetration of Romanic art and the first Gothic decorative taste in Sicily, expanding the spectrum of the Arab-Norman syncretism with new elements in an original and multiple composition and exhibition of the Mediterranean arts. The building underwent a late-eighteenth-century renovation carried out on a project by Ferdinando Fuga. This period dates back to the Norman-Swabian royal and imperial sarcophagi in the first two chapels of the right aisle, where the remains of Roger II and his daughter Constance, of Emperor Henry VI, of Frederick II and his wife Costanza D’Aragona are preserved.”

“The Royal Palace of Palermo (11th-12th centuries) is the main monument to represent the wealth and political and cultural power of the Norman kingdom, a model of Arab-Norman architecture. An ancient Islamic Castrum erected on pre-existing Punic origins, from 1072 it became the residence of the Norman sovereigns. Its Torre Pisana (second quarter of the 12th century) is a unique example of a fortified tower, similar to those of the Norman donjon, whose plan is similar to ifriqeni Islamic models. La Joharia (mid-12th century) includes Sala dei Venti and Sala di Ruggero. The Sala dei Venti, or of the four columns, derives its architecture from the durqa'a, the inner courtyard of the Islamic ifriqeni and Fatimid palaces. It is preserved intact and is in fact one of the best preserved examples of this architectural typology in the medieval Mediterranean. Sala di Ruggero is characterized by impressive mosaics that cover the walls and the cross vault with profane, hunting and paradisiac scenes. The mosaics of Stanza di Ruggero, together with the fragments preserved in the Pisan Tower and the mosaic panel of Sala della Fontana in Palazzo della Zisa, are rare examples of profane decorations, distinguished by the significant presence of figurative elements derived from Islamic and Sassanid culture.. A widespread genre in the Byzantine courtly world of which today there are no traces except in historical sources.”

“This site is at only 20 min. from Trapani and it is included in all the itineraries of Sicily. Here lived the Elymians, one of oldest tribes of Sicily. The temple was not completed but it still looks great especially at night, when you can see it lit up. At the top of hill, you will find a beautiful theatre that hosts representation at summer.”

““Paceville” is a very deceitful name as it means “peace village”, and it is anything but that! If you’re looking for a crazy night out then look no further as this is THE place you want to go. Clubs, bars, strip clubs, fast food joints, you name it, this place has everything you would ever want, latched together with a big shopping center at the end of the paceville stairs comprised of even more bars, restaurants, arcade hall and shops of course. If you want to party, this is where you should go as it is and the “red-light district” of Malta!”

“Immersed in nature and surrounded by mountains, this park perfectly represents the Sicilian side that goes beyond beaches and monument. Easily reachable from the motorway Catania-Messina, the Gorges of Alcantara river are stunningly set among rocks, with very clear (but also very cold!) waters where you can immerse your feet.”
