It was consecrated way back in 1267 but took so long to build that it contains a veritable history of the architectural epochs in the region. It contains Sicilian, Latin, Greek, and Arab influences, with Byzantine columns and 16th_century Renaissance sculptures. This town in northern Sicily is also a beach resort, and to enjoy it at its best, rent yourself a lido at Lungomare Giuseppe Giardina, the longest beach in the town. At one end you’ll find Porta Pescara, the best place from which to watch the sun setting over the sea.
