LA SCALA DEI TURCHI
The Scala dei Turchi is a rocky wall (cliff) rising over the sea along the coast between Realmonte and Porto Empedocle in the province of Agrigento.
The Scala dei Turchi has a wavy and irregular shape, with sweet and rounded lines.
The name comes from the past raids of Turkish pirates, who were sheltered in this area less than the winds and representing a safer landing.
The beach is famous for the candida and dazzling color of its rocks; is a protected area but in the past it has been threatened several times by tourism …
Piero: “Guys, Good morning to everyone, from La Scala dei Turchi”
And one of his friends says:
“Look what spectacle we have here in Sicily guys”
