Sciacca is a charming coastal town located on the southwest coast of Sicily. It is a municipality in the province of Agrigento, known for its thermal waters since antiquity for the healing properties of its waters. Today, the town is a renowned thermal resort where visitors can enjoy thermal baths, wellness cures and relaxing treatments.

Above all, Sciacca boasts a rich historical heritage with a history dating back to Greek times, followed by Roman, Byzantine, Arab and Norman dominations. The town has a well-preserved medieval structure with narrow streets, small squares and ancient churches. Among the historical sights to visit are the Enchanted Castle, a unique collection of stone sculptures, and the Church of St Michael Archangel with its valuable mosaics.

Sciacca is also a town of seafaring traditions, famous for its fishing and fish processing. The port is bustling with fishermen selling the catch of the day and colourful fishing boats. The cuisine is also based on fresh produce from the sea and the surrounding countryside. Local dishes include fresh fish, pasta with seafood, arancini, cannoli and other Sicilian specialities.

But one of the most anticipated events of the year is the Carnival of Sciacca for sure, one of the oldest and most picturesque in Sicily. During the festival, the streets are filled with allegorical floats and traditional masks that parade in a colourful and entertaining procession.

Sciacca overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and offers some beautiful beaches, such as San Marco and Sovareto. These beaches attract tourists and locals who wish to relax, sunbathe and swim in the crystal-clear waters.

With its combination of thermal baths, maritime traditions, historical heritage and natural beauty, Sciacca offers an authentic and interesting experience for visitors.
