Experiences & Surroundings
Enjoy the real Sicilian lifestyle in Terre di Zaccanello
Terre di Zaccanello is located along the "road of writers" in the territory of Racalmuto, a delightful village behind Agrigento, where among churches and castles, it’s easy to feel like a character of Camilleri’s novels. The town, rich in history and culture, is known for having given birth to one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, Leonardo Sciascia, and for its Regina Margherita Theatre, built around the end of the nineteenth century and inspired by the Massimo Theatre in Palermo.
The surroundings offer wonderful landscapes, including the coastline with its incredible Scala dei Turchi, a brilliantly white cliff shaped like large and soft stairway that rises to the sea and offers a breathtaking view of the coast.
Then Agrigento, Luigi Pirandello's birthplace, with its characteristic tuff buildings, that reaches its fullest splendour during almond blossom season, a moment that is honoured with an international festival.
Close by, the Valley of the Temples, a field of doric temples characterized by an exceptional state of preservation which forms, together with the Kolymbetra’s gardens, the largest archaeological site in the world, on Unesco's World Heritage List since 1997. With a little luck, you can meet the Girgens goats, a Slow Food Presidium.
