Moving from Catania towards the north we can admire traditional sicilian lemon trees, agaves and palms. At some point, approximately in 9 km from Catania, you will see the rocks emerging from the sea as if they were thrown by a giant, and the Norman castle situated on a spur rock. The rocks of volcanic origin are about 70 metres high and are called Cliffs of Cyclops. The coast was named after them the Riviera (coast) of the Cyclops.

The Castle was built in 1076 on the rock emerged during ancient volcanic eruptions of Etna. The Castle is accessed via a stone bridge.


Once you get the terrace of the Castle, you see a breathtaking view: the crystal sea, the island, the cliffs and the Riviera of the Cyclops with sicilian countryside. Staying there, you have the impression that time hasn’t passed by.


The terrace with sea view of the Castle near Catania could become the venue of your civil wedding in Sicily.
