The turkish steps

The Turkish steps is not only a natural feature, but is also a part of local legends:
it is said that the Saracen pirates (for the Sicilians, the “Turks”, which is a negative connotation that indicates all the people that were once devoted to piracy),
docked ships in the calm, clean waters, protected by the “Scala”, and climbed these natural “steps” to reach the top of the cliff and raid local villages,
including the village of Realmonte.
