Then we’ll start our walking tour through the old town: picturesque alleys, medieval buildings, typical “trattorie” and attractive local artisan shops.

We’ll pass by Porta Pescara, the ancient medieval gate, placed near the beach and the old port, where the film-maker Giuseppe Tornatore, in 1988, shot a scene of the well-known movie “Nuovo Cinema Paradiso”. Other spots included in the tour: the medieval Washhouse, laid out at the bottom of a scenographic staircase, and the Mandralisca Museum, which houses an archeological collection of findings and the Art Gallery: on display the famous “Portrait of an unknown man”, one among Antonello da Messina’s masterpieces.
