At Realmonte ( 15 km ) “ La scala dei Turchi” (the stair of the Turks); a huge rocky cliff which is a great tourist attraction; it is a snow-white sedimentary rock at the back of the beach of Realmonte, shaped like an enormous stair.

Inside the farm on the table land that borders with the slope to the beach stands up the Tower built by the architect Camillani in the XVI Century to defence Sicily from the frequent enemy raids. A warning signal or the imminent threat was sent to the nearby tower by setting fire; and so forth from tower to tower all the area in danger was put on the alert.
