What to VISIT in 300 meters from the House of words a fascinating cycle path runs alongside the torrent D ' Agrò, left at the beautiful beach 1.5 km from Santa Teresa, right at 2 km the majestic Church of St. Peter and Paul, a fine example of Arab-Norman architecture-Byzantine.

2 km to the medieval village of Savoca, where some scenes were filmed "Il Padrino" part one of Francis Ford Coppola. To visit the Bar Vitelli, the churches, the crypt of mummies inside the Franciscan convent.

To 3 km, next to the village of Savoca, Casalvecchio Siculo. To visit the beautiful Cathedral with the fine wooden roof.

At 5 km, exit s.Alessio, direction Catania, at the height of the castle of s. Alessio, climb to the right and reach Forza D ' Agrò, medieval village that has nothing to envy to the nearby Taormina, the Pearl of the Ionian Sea. There also turn some scenes of "the Godfather" part three of Francis Ford Coppola.

What TASTE In summer Sundays all local butchers sell "roasted Meat", an ancient delicacy made of mutton cooked for hours in stone ovens, whose recipe is rooted in the 18th century. Three centuries of history, that take us back to the crime of cattle rustling (cattle theft) practiced by farmers at the expense of the shepherds of sheep and goats. Hunger forced them with greed to dig ditches in the ground, where Cook with wood burning, and catmint and fennel as flavourings, meat stolen. In this way the smoke could not be released outside and so, hardly, farmers could be discovered. In all the bars in the area you can enjoy excellent lemon slush or at the cafe. And clearly, in the restaurants, the flavorful Strait fish, including swordfish.
