Today we take a tour to the villas of Bagheri. One of them is known for its monster statues:

Palazzo Butera

The Palazzo is owned by the Lancia family. This family belongs to the great princely houses in the former Kingdom of Sicily, along with the Alliata, Filangeri, Gravina, Moncada, Notarbartolo, Paterna, Spucches, Stagno, Tomasi di Lampedusa, Valguarnera and Ventimiglia. According to the famous novel “The Gattopardo” these are sometimes referred to as “The Leopards”.

Villa Palagonia

An unusual baroque castle became known mainly because of its statues. These monsters with human faces gave him the name Villa dei Mostri. In his Italian journey, Goethe wrote an impressive description of this pleasure castle on the date of 9 April 1787.

Villa Valguarnera

Unlike most villas in Bagheria, this property was never used for agricultural purposes, but only as a luxurious alternative to the City Palace in Palermo. In 2016, Dolce & Gabbana have shot an advertisement for a perfume here.

In the afternoon continue towards Aspra and visit the Ponte degli Innamorati (“Bridge of Love”)

Himera was a mixed Chalcolidic-Doric colony that dates back to around 648 BC. founded by Zankle and the Myletids expelled from Syracuse on the north coast of Sicily. The place was the only ancient Greek colony on the north coast of Sicily. The great year of Himeras was 480 BC. Chr .: Called by the tyrant Terillos threatened by Theron von Akragas, the Carthaginians landed at Himera – supposedly in agreement with the Xerxes attacking in the east – but were crushed by Theron in league with Gelon from Syracuse. The remains of the victory temple can still be seen.

Continue to an idyllic farm in Scillato. Everything is organic and is cast with an ancient aqueduct, which is also very interesting to look at. There are all kinds of fruits here and every month one or more different fruits for picking and eating directly – or to bring them home.

The three-aisled column basilica shows style features of Arab-Byzantine-Norman art. Two massive bell towers flank the facade. Inside, the cathedral is equipped with elaborate gold mosaics. In 1988, parts of the internationally acclaimed film “Cinema Paradiso” were shot in Cefalu, directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. We give the opportunity for a romantic dinner in Cefalu “on your own” on the beach.

Birds and crickets set the tone for the idyllic and unique Madonie Nature Park 🙂 First we visit Castelbuono, a village built around a castle.
