The land of the Cyclops has been praised by poets from Homer to Virgil and prized by the many ancient cultures Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Elymians, Normans, Romans and Greeks whose bones lie buried here. Whether its walking through the gates of Messina or gates of Catania in Taormina you will see ancient remnants and feel the victory and bloody defeat of many who seized and lost this desirable Territory. Or, travel the Island and witness the classical perfection of Agrigentos Concordia temple, the monumental rubble of Selinuntes columns or the rare grace of a dancing satyr statue rescued from Mazara del Vallos watery depths, reminders of bygone civilisations are everywhere.A delectable layer-cake of culinary influences, Sicilys ancient cuisine continues to rely on a few key locally-grown ingredients: shellfish and citrus, tuna and swordfish, squash, pistachios, walnuts, almonds and ricotta. Talk to the creative chefs at any area restaurant and they may confide that they still use their family recipes for pasta alla Norma, Caponata or Cannoli. Modern chefs may play with the details, but Sicilys timeless recipes from the simplest ingredients live on. Sicilys varied landscape makes a dramatic first impression. Fly into Catania and the smoking hulk of Etna greets you; arrive in Palermo and its the sparkling Golfo di Castellammare.This juxtaposition of sea, volcano and mountain scenery makes a stunning backdrop for outdoor activities. Hikers can wind along precipitous coastlines, climb erupting volcanoes and traipse through flowery mountain meadows; birders benefit from the plethora of species on the Africa-Europe migration route; and divers and swimmers enjoy some of the Mediterraneans most pristine waters. Whatever your personal predilections, Sicily and its dozen-plus offshore islands offer enough activities to build an entire vacation or life around.As if its classical heritage werent formidable enough, Sicily is bursting at the seams with artistic and architectural gems. In a short walk around any of the major cities, youll see Arab domes and arches, Byzantine mosaics and Norman palace walls. Circle around Sicily and youll find a stunning array of baroque architectural masterpieces, from the golden-hued domes and palaces of Noto to the multi-tiered cathedral facades of Ragusa and Modica. Meanwhile, throughout the island, youll find yourself stumbling upon the evocative remains of Greek, Roman, Arab, Norman, French and Spanish castles. Cultural riches and remains are one of the islands most distinctive attractions.MAIN FEATURES: 186m2 of living space 1360m2 plot 2 Bedrooms with potential for 3 2 Bathrooms Selected Contents Included Private Parking Private Garden Stunning Views Close to essential amenities like such as supermarkets and pharmacies Close to many excellent bars and restaurants Great base from which to discover other fantastic areas of Sicily Many excellent sports facilities, walking and cycling areas nearby Rental Potential through Airbnb and Booking.comContact us today to buy or sell property in Sicily Italy fast online
