Listed as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites, Scicli in the south east of Sicily, is certainly worth a visit when in this region of Italy. Sitting in a gorge, overlooked by a rocky mass, it’s quite an impressive view, but it’s once you get inside the town, the treasures are really uncovered. Boasting a number of lovely churches including Sant’Ignazio, St Bartolomeo and Santa Maria la Nova, it is the Church of San Matteo that sits atop the rocky mass that really grabs your attention. It is here you’ll also find the ruin of an Arab castle, and within the rocks around it, clustered cave-dwellings. Unlike Matera, the caves are still uninhabited, but lovely to wander around. Strolling through the streets, you’ll discover the beautiful baroque Palazzo Fava and the characteristic Palazzo Benventano with its interesting gargoyles. Once you’ve finished sightseeing, take a walk down the Via Francesco Mormina Penna, a fantastic late Baroque street where you’ll find a number of lovely shops, restaurants and café terraces to enjoy the late Sicilian sun.
