Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Sicily is an island full of strong contrasts, a land rich in history and culture, lively, enticing cities of art, ancient fishermen’s villages where time seems to have come to a standstill and amazing natural wonders, beautiful beaches and islands where you can relax surrounded by crystal clear waters.
The island is a crossroads for populations who were completely different from one another, who have all left permanent traces of themselves in the island’s culture.
Discover Sicily and discover the world. The world's first multicultural society, our island is Italy's (and Europe's) most historically cosmopolitan region, having been ruled by Asians, Africans and Europeans. There's no other place on Earth like it.
Our island is a unique place full of art, archaeology, history, folklore and Nature's treasures.breathtaking scenery and, of course, great food.
The Romans called Sant' Alessio "Promontorium". The present-day name first appears in a document of 1117 and probably derives from Alexius emperor of Constantnople, who was a guest at the castle around which there later developed the whole village.
So the castle, as we see it today, dates from the Norman period. It was restructured at the start of the nineteenth century by the English, who also built the outer ring of walls, to defend it against attacks by the French, who were preparing to invade Sicily from Calabria.
