5th day
The Akragantina coast from Scala dei Turchi to Siculiana Realmonte. Visit to the Scala dei Turchi, the realmonte coast unique in the world; so named because of its shape that recalls that of a staircase on which legend has it that, during the period of Saracen raids, the Turks went up to perpetrate their looting. It stands between the beach and the hills that limit the coast itself, made up of limestone and clay with a characteristic white color, made dazzling by sunlight, the waters below are of extraordinary clarity. Historians do not agree on the origins of Siculiana: some trace it back to the ancient Supper, one of the stations on Antonio's itinerary, from Agrigento to western Sicily; for others it was founded by the Arabs, but was destroyed by the Normans.
