Sciacca

Overview

There are many reasons to visit Sciacca. Its Carnival, exciting and full of tradition; the splendid and elegant churches and palaces; the Enchanted Garden, with its mysterious statues; the narrow streets that suddenly open onto stairways decorated with beautiful majolica. But Sciacca is above all maritime essence, and this soul is already expressed in the colourful fishermen's houses overlooking the small port, the small boats moored there, the fish unloaded daily to be sold or cooked fresh. And then, to tell this link with the sea, there is the coral. Yes, coral here has characteristics that are unique in the world because it originates from the meeting of the sea with the land: in the 19th century, due to earthquakes and eruptions, many coral reefs were torn off and deposited on the seabed, forming deposits that, through the action of muds and volcanic gases, became something unique, the famous Mediterranean Rubrum coral.
