Additional Location Information
Pozzallo is one of the most popular tourist area of the Sicily southeast coast belonging to Ragusa province and is the first port for the tourist contacts with Malta.
You won't believe but this charming town, placed between long beaches, unpolluted sea and an inland rich of culture and art (the Hyblean baroque) is more southern than Tunis in Africa!
- Sunshine, clear blue sky, transparent waters and long sandy natural beaches perfect for tanning, baths, long daily walks and with the afternoon thermal wind kite surfing.
- The Cabrera Tower, symbol of the town, built in the fifteenth century
- The seaside Promenade, recommended for children, very large and wide, with palms and a bicycle lane will invite you out for walks to take at night a fresh sea breeze together with a fantastic icecream or the famous Sicily's speciality the “granita” which you won't find equal outside the isle!
- Vendicari Natural park for flamingo and other migrating birds is only 30Km away, nearby a beautiful tiny fishing village where you can have a drink or a good meal listening music.
Place to visit:
- Ragusa Ibla (30Km) the older lower town with numerous examples of fine Baroque palaces and churches.
- Situated a few kilometres to the south of Ragusa is the town of Modica (20 Km) Unesco preserved town for his Baroque palaces and churches and known for a special chocolate they produce there.
- Even closer to Pozzallo the two other Baroque towns: Scicli (20 Km), with its gorgeus palaces and churches and Ispica (15 Km) where worth a visit is the Cava d’Ispica, a deep gorge, about 13km in length with on the sides prehistoric tombs and caves
- Siracusa (65 Km), Syracuse in English, was once one of the key Cities of the ancient Greek world. The old town is centred on Ortigia, which is a promontory connected to the mainland by the Umbertino bridge. Famous town historical site is the Doric Temple of Apollo, built in 6th century BC and considered the oldest in all Western Europe.
- Last but not least Noto (30 Km) which has been considered the most beautiful Baroque Sicilian town and you cannot miss being only half an hour drive from Pozzallo!
Other suggested trips but far away are:
- Catania (120 km but direct bus) with the town, 3000mt high Etna Volcano still alive and erupting
- Beautiful Taormina (170 km) with Naxos gardens or
- Agrigento (172 km) on the west with his Archaeological and landscape Park of the “Valley of the Temples” which gives you a breath taken scenario of an ancient Greek town and temples with the surrounding area, crossed by the Akragas and Ypsas rivers, extending up to the hill of Montelusa and the sea of St. Leone.
