The town of Favara
Tourism in Favara
On a valley looking to the homonymous river, Favara has still a medieval planning, with simple stone houses, small avenues alternating to stairs and pebble streets.

In the inside court-yard there is a finely decorated staircase,taking upstairs to a lobby framed by a door with a barrel vault and a large mullioned window.
Outside you will notice an ogival portal decorated by a triple arched lintel and a Romanesque style architrave.
From here you reach the annexed chapel, surmounted by a Gothic arch and covered by a splendid hemispherical Arab dome.
Just off the castle you can enjoy a wonderful view, looking to the fertile valley beneath.
