Description

This excursion allows you to discover Caltabellotta, a small village in the mountains above Sciacca, extended over Kratas, on the southern part of the Sicani Mountains, one of the oldest cities in Sicily. Our agency offers you two different times with departure by bus at 9:00 or 14:30 from your hotel or near the Gulliver agency. The journey takes about 30 minutes along which you will have the opportunity to admire a typically Sicilian natural landscape where the mountains embrace the sea. Its position, 1000 meters above sea level, has made this small village in the mountains a rather remarkable strategic point, making it the protagonist. In fact it was disputed, dominated, looted and destroyed by the populations that dominated Sicily, despite this it managed to survive and sometimes to regenerate itself, even changing its position and the name itself. Historical center: Upon your arrival, the driver will leave you near the historic center and then continue on foot, up to the upper area called 'Terra Vecchia', full of ruins, art and history. Here in the heart of the historic center stands the 'Palazzo Signorile' by the artist Salvatore Rizzuti, which you will have the opportunity to visit. The Palace has always been known as the 'Old Prison' due to its ultimate purpose during the Spanish domination, however today it is also the seat of the city's Town Hall and inside there is a large collection of wooden sculptures, clay and terracotta, bas-reliefs and drawings. Monte San Pellegrino: Subsequently, continuing the journey on foot, you will reach 'Monte San Pellegrino' where you will discover the ancient mother church built by the Normans and dominated by a castle from where you can admire the remains of the walls that surround the city, the ancient tower, two caves of prehistoric origin and the four necropolises that surround the city. Tasting: After this historical tour, you will finally have a small tasting of typical local products including bread, cheese and above all the Caltabellotta oil known for its derivation from a native olive, 'La Buscionetta', cultivated mainly according to the organic.
