La Scala dei Turchi is a rocky wall (cliff) that rises
above the sea along the coast of Realmonte. Over time it has become a tourist
attraction both for the singularity of the white cliff, with its peculiar
shapes, and as a result of the popularity acquired thanks to the novels of
Inspector Montalbano by Andrea Camilleri. La Scala is made up of marl, a
sedimentary rock of calcareous and clayey nature.
It houses part of the material heritage that belonged to the great playwright and his family: the structure is equipped with a powerful communicative apparatus, functional to enhance the intangible heritage expressed by his genius.
The result of nine centuries of constructions, renovations, extensions and restorations, today it is very complex in its architectural structures, suggestive for its grandeur and elegance and also for the variety of styles and the richness of the works of art it contains.
The Kolymbetra Garden (Greek term indicating a type of swimming pool used in Roman times for water games) is a site of great archaeological, landscape, agricultural and naturalistic importance, located in the Valley of the Temples, in Agrigento.
