The Valley of the Temples is one of the most suggestive attraction of Sicily. It is on of the biggest archaeological park in the world. Among a blooming almond trees countryside, the wonderful ruins of the temples, whose architectural majesty is still intact, will fascinate you.

This archaeological marvel consists of eight temples (Concordia, Heracles, Olympia...) built in the 5th century BC.

********************************************************

THE TURKISH STAIRCASE – Realmonte (30 Km)

“Scala dei Turchi” is a singular white cliff made by limestone and clay which rises along the coast of Realmonte and overlooks a crystalline sea. It has became a tourist attraction for its particular color and shape; wind and rain have modeled it throughout the time, creating a huge natural staircase whose lines are rounded and irregular. Its white rocks look brighter thanks to the sun light and the water is incredibly clear.

The name comes from the Turkish invasions. According to an old legend, the Saracens got there from the sea and climbed the cliff until the top, once there they attacked the local people.

*******************************************************

SCIACCA (30 Km): Fishing, Craftsmanship, Baths, Carnival

ERACLEA MINOA (12 Km)

It is a beautiful and long beach marked at one end by the tall white cliffs of the promontory and by a large pine-grove.

It's also an archaeological site: the excavations, started in 1950, brought to light remains of dwellings made of rough bricks, some still retaining mosaic fragments, and of a theatre made of a particularly soft stone, hence in a poor condition
