Discover the beautiful landscapes of Sicily
The position of the Castle enables the beauty of the neighbouring areas to be appreciated in all seasons: from the natural terrace on which it is situated there is an unrivalled view of the north-west slopes of Mount Etna, and it dominates the Nebrodi Mountains nature park and the valley of the River Alcantara, in an ideal location for those who enjoy rural and cultural tourism. Peaceful hacks in the countryside can be enjoyed on the riding school horses. Various itineraries can be chosen setting out from the Castle: hikers can explore the natural beauties of the Nebrodi Mountains and the Alcantara valley, whilst cultural and elegant itineraries point towards Taormina, Catania and Syracuse and their archaeological sites, historic buildings and splendid beaches.
For those deciding to spend some time in the nearby town of Randazzo, a melting pot of Arab, Norman and medieval buildings, churches and historic monuments of great artistic worth can be ‘discovered’ and admired, all in a postcard setting of intricate lava-stone narrow streets and alleys.
