The picturesque small fishing village of Acicastello with its unique history and beauty has inspired the world of mythology, literature and cinema, first with Homer in the Odyssey, then with the writer Giovanni Verga in the novel 'I Malavoglia' and then with the filmmaker Luchino Visconti who decided to set here the 1948 movie 'La Terra Trema'.
From the top of the Norman castle of Acicastello (built in 1076), it is possible to admire the spectacular lava rock formations known as 'Faraglioni' that emerge from the sea close to the village of Acitrezza.
The beauty of the unspoilt sea and of the lava coastline make Acicastello one of the most suggestive and fascinating places of the Meditterranean Sea.
