“Casa al Castello” is the right location to totally experience Sicily and its culture.
To do this, we can involve our guests in different activities, like cultural tours, food & wine tours, trekking, cooking classes, painting and pottery workshops, Hatha Yoga and Pilates classes.
To offer all of this to our guests, we have a precious and skilled partner, “Uncovered Sicily”, which is a team of Sicilian archaeologists, art historians and “food & wine” experts, brought up with a passion for their island.
As they deem that “travel” is an essential part of the cultural growth of a person, they involve their travellers deeply, making them “feel and live” Sicily in all its multifaceted characteristics.
Thanks to our collaboration with experienced guides of "Kalura" naturalistic association it’s possible, on request, to organize guided tours and visits inside the Archaeological Park of Cava d’Ispica and along the Cava.
We propose you half-day trekking trips (for about 2-3 hours) or longer trips (for about 5 hours) focused on the northern side of the Cava and especially along the spectacular “ring-shaped path belonging to the rocky village”, the only one mid-side way of the Cava that provides breathtaking panoramic glimpses and leads to one of the most suggestive and uncontaminated places of the Iblei Mountains.
Along this way you’ll discover little known charming archaeological areas as: the Castello Sicano, the rocky village of Pernamazzoni, the archaeological sites of Convento and Capreria.
Prepare yourself to enjoy also a good cup of coffee and typical pastries during the break-time at the shelter house of Kalura.
