Forming part of a region known for the intensive cultivation of citrus fruits, the Nebrodi Mountains jut out into the sea at intervals. The coastal town of Capo d’Orlando lies at the foot of the Rupe del Semaforo cliff and the rocky bill after which the town was named. A climb of about 100 meters will take you to the top of the cliff. There, in a large open space, stand the remains of a 14th-century fortress and Maria Santissima, a church built in the late 1500s and now home to several interesting paintings.
On one of the stretches where the coastal scenery is most fascinating, just past the rocky promontory of Capo Calavà on the slopes overlooking the sea, is the town of Patti. Initially a fief of the Norman ruler Roger I, it was later destroyed during the wars with the Angevins and then frequently pillaged by pirates from North Africa. Patti boasts an 18th-century Cathedral built over the foundations of the former Norman church. Inside is a sarcophagus with the remains of Queen Adelaide, who died here in 1118.
Milazzo began to take its place in written history when Mylai was colonized by the Greeks in 716 BC. The Normans later chose it as their main coastal stronghold. Frederick II personally designed the castle built here in 1239. The town was divided into three distinct zoned in the Middle Ages – the walled town, the Borgo, and the lower town – and it was expanded in the 1700s. The Salita Castello leads up to the ancient rock, which affords access to the walled town via a covered passageway.
The Arabs occupied the Nebrodi Mountains for centuries and referred to them as “an island on an island”. The name comes from the Greek word nebros because of the rich wildlife found in this mountain range, which separates the Madonie Mountains to the west from the Peloritani Mountains to the east. The Parco Regionale dei Monti Nebrodi is a nature reserve with extensive forests and some pastureland, which is covered with snow in the winter.
Consisting of strikingly beautiful volcanic cliffs separated by inlets, sometimes quite deep, the Aeolian Islands are unique for their extraordinary rock formations and volcanoes, and for their history. The islands attract hordes of visitors every summer who come to bathe and dive, yet despite the crowds, each island somehow manages to preserve its own individual character. Dominating the islands, especially in winter, is the sea, with migratory birds nesting on the cliffs, and frequent storms.
