Acitrezza & Acicastello
Acicastello maintains a unique charm, with the crystalline waters of its sea lining the lava stone ridges, in the shadow of the Norman Castle from which the city takes its name. Evenings are always alive and lively, thanks to the many restaurants and clubs, specialized in preparing delicious fish dishes.
Acitrezza so characteristic that it inspired the odes of Homer for its Odyssey, it is a fraction of Acicastello and a very charming little fishing village. The panorama is dominated by the stacks, the lava ridges formed before Etna. According to the myth of the Odyssey recounted by Homer it was the Cyclops Polyphemus who hurled large boulders against Ulysses’ boats.
