2017, Jul 7-9. South Sicily forgotten coasts, between Licata and Palma di Montechiaro

TripPuzzle and Cooperativa Silene propose a weekend discovering a unique stretch of Sicilian coast and still little known, between Licata, Palma di Montechiaro and Agrigento.

There is a Sicilian coast, scorched and sparsely populated, which is in contrast to the Tyrrhenian Sicily, where alternate crops of citrus and wooded heights and a nearly unbroken string of houses and smaller and larger centers characterizes the coast. We refer to the southern coast of Sicily, in particular in the province of Agrigento, where beaches, cliffs and marl clay cliffs will linger on for tens of kilometers, and where country roads leading to beaches and coves half-hidden and unknown. Even here, of course, it comes some annoying "flicker" of modern civilization of Sicily, made of abuse and ruined by construction, but the grandeur of coastal landscapes and the constant presence of the sea, dilute them almost to make them disappear.

This proposal we will discover picturesque beaches and isolated coves as Punta Bianca, from almost unreal nature, or that near the ancient Torre San Carlo, or the castle of Montechiaro overlooking the sea and rediscover a different way also classic spots Sicilian nature, such as the Scala dei Turchi from a sailboat. Licata and Kolymbethra (in the archaeological area of the Valley of the Temples) complete this rich program.

An imposing castle stands on the coast west of Marina di Palma, whose tower stands the surrounding landscape. It is striking that, being situated on the coast, it is not the usual coastal tower but were more articulate artifact. And 'the Chiaramonte Castle, built in the fourteenth century by the powerful feudal family. The castle defended a major granary charger on the coast and is located about 6 km from Palma. It constitutes one of the classic examples of Sicilian castles that "springing" from a clifftop, taking advantage of its strategic location (such as that of Mussomeli). The castle changed its name, from Chiaramonte in Montechiaro, when it was confiscated to the powerful family and relocated to Moncada, who in this way wanted to erase the traces and memory of the presence of the predecessors.
