Scala dei Turchi

Beach Sicily, Italy

The white fascination of Scala dei Turchi

Scala dei Turchi is a white rocky wall that rises to the sea along the coast between Realmonte and Porto Empedocle, in the province of Agrigento.

The cliff is made up of a white spur marble prominent on the sea, whose layered degrading foams give a very impressive appearance, accentuated in turn by the strong contrasts of colors: the blue of the sea and the sky against the white Blinding rock. The form that this monument of nature assumes is that of a stairway, where according to the legend, during the Moorish invasions that invaded in the fifteenth century, the Turks (so mistakenly called) landed in the territory of today's Realmonte bursting on stratifications Of this cliff.
