A splendid white jewel that frames the clear blue of the sea is the Scala dei Turchi. It is a fascinating place, where centuries of rain and wind have carved out a natural staircase whose white color is made more dazzling by the sunlight.

La Scala dei Turchi is not only nature, but also a place evoked in local legend: it is said that the Saracen pirates (for the Sicilians the “Turks” is a negative connotation that indicates all those populations that were once dedicated to piracy), moored the ships in the calm, clear waters protected by the Scala, they climbed those natural “steps”, reaching the top of the cliff and thus raiding all the surrounding villages, including the town of Realmonte.

The exuberance of this place is also given by the ensemble made up of its beaches that stretch to the sides, from Giallonardo to Pergole, Pietre Cadute, Lido Rossello, up to Punta Grande, on the border with the territory of Porto Empedocle.

For those who choose to visit or stay in these places, they can easily reach areas rich in history such as, for example, the nearby archaeological site of Villa Romana which, in addition to an enviable position, make it a place of considerable charm, impossible to miss. if you visit these places. Along this coastal strip, there is also a good deal of hospitality and catering, all forming a unique mix of places, emotions, smells, flavors and colors.
