We are in Portopalo di Menfi repeatedly awarded (24 times until this date) with the Blue Flag as the cleanest and sustainable beach in Sicily.
The sea village of Portopalo itself is a very typical place with low houses and a tower of the XVI century.
The closest town is Menfi, 4 kms.
Agrigento with its Unesco's temples is 60 km’s away: a valley of history and almond trees!
10 kms and here there are the Cave di Cusa (foto) a stone quarry misteriously abandoned in 409 B.C.
Here you can still see the rows of the columns destined to the Selinunte sacred temples!
Worth a visit the Belice valley (15 km), a very mysterious place where you can find ghost towns, endless agricultural fields, futuristic towns...
Selinunte the largest archeological park in Europe is 20 km’s away.
Sciacca, a medieval Sicilian town is 15 km’s away.
Palermo (foto) the capital of Sicily is 60 km’s away: monuments, museums and the renowend outdoor markets of one of the most beautiful towns in the world.
And let's speak about the food now!
That'ssome of the unmissable dishes if you are in bella Sicilia: Pasta alla Norma, Busiate alla Trapanese, Parmigiana, Arancino, Mediterranea fish, Granita with brioche, Cannolo of ricotta
