Bundled like a swallow's nest on the slopes of a mountain, in front of enchanting views and scenarios, surrounded by precipices and deep gorges, Caltabellotta offers one of the most pleasant and nicest mountain resorts of Sicily.
Ancient location, Caltabellotta preserves its original urban aspect, characterized by tiny, refined homes, bundled up closely, made precious by their elegant doors and ancient balconies; an entangled web of tiny streets smoothened by time; flights of steps within steep alleys connecting blocks; arches wrapping underground passages, where scents of our present blend with the ancient colors of history.
In the unsettling weaving of these small spaces, in the town's surroundings, and in the valleys below, numerous are the signs testifying the millenary history of Caltabellotta: churches and monasteries, ancient Gothic doorways and the valuable works of art, the remainders of the Norman castle and the Sicilian necropolis, more archeological findings and a fragment of a Roman mosaic discovered in the Sant'Anna area.

Caltabellotta is the "Creche City" all year around, but during the Christmas season the town becomes even more fascinating. The architectural space blends with the value of the traditions; mountains and skies meet with the work of men, creating an almost surreal atmosphere all across the landscape. This atmosphere leads us into the night, and under the stars, taking us through the lengthy itinerary of nature re-invented by men, nature once originated from nothing. We rediscover the memory of a specific time and space, that reveal themselves through the symbolic games of objects and gestures, values that have always been rooted within the deep history of each one of us, and always will.
