Calatabiano town has a plant in a star shape and is situated in a fertile plain at the foot of the Castle Hill, 62 meters above sea level and less than 3 km from the blue and clear Ionian Sea. Its geographical location allows tourists to enjoy the major attractions of Sicily: near Taormina and a few kilometers from Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe, which in the past year has made a fine show. The climate is Mediterranean and it is characterized by short and little rigid winters and hot and long summers. The territory is separated from the province of Messina by the famous Alcantara River (comes from the Arab: "bridge"). The historical origins of Calatabiano are linked to those of his castle that rises on a hill at 250 meters above sea level. The name has Arab origin, "Kalaat" means "castle" and "Bian" is the name of Kakim, his first lord. The castle, with its present structure, has Arab origin (IX sec.), but recent excavations have unearthed a layer of Byzantine ruins. This makes us think that some form of fortification existed since the late Roman world. A visit to the country can only start from the main square where there is the mother church Maria Santissima Annunziata, on his altar you can admire the sixteenth century wooden Crucifix by Giovanni Salvo D'Antonio, from Antonelliana School. Leaving the church, the ancient road connects the today town with the old village. Along the way we meet the humble church of Jesus and Mary (1695), built in a rectangular square that offers to lovers of art, history and a fascinating panorama of nature: here is the holiday house of “Il Maniero”. Continuing to go up, before the castle walls and ruins, there are the Church of Carmelo (1684) and the Church of the Holy Crucifix (1484), home of the protector and patron of Catalabiano, San Filippo Syriac. Looking up the Castle imposes his presence.

Sicily is a region of Southern Italy and the largest island of our country. It is bathed by the Tyrrhenian Sea to the north, the Ionian Sea to the east, the Sea of Sicily in the south. Its provinces are Palermo (chief town), Agrigento, Caltanissetta, Catania, Enna, Messina, Ragusa, Siracusa and Trapani. The highest point in Sicily is an active volcano which is located north-east of the island: Mount Etna. Some islands and archipelagos such as the Aeolian Islands, the Egadi, the Pelagie, Pantelleria and Ustica are parts of sicilian territory. The ancient name of this region was Trinakria which means "three points", such as those that bound the region. The emblem of Sicily is the head of Medusa from which come off three legs chasing, the symbol of the three forms taken by the sun (the god of spring, summer and winter). The current name of the island probably derives from "fertile" but did not replace the ancient symbol of Medusa. The land of Sicily has been visited for centuries by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans. Each of these civilizations has left a mark on the culture, traditions and art of this beautiful region. We found Greek temples, Roman mosaics, Arab buildings, Norman structures that recall and testify to the historical past and cultural heritage of Sicily.
The jewel of Taormina, nestled in the Ionian coast of Sicily, is characterized by the pleasant and healthy micro-climate of the region that is mild and constant, sometimes slightly damp. Average temperatures in winter reach about 11-12 ° C and rarely drop below 10 ° C, even in the coldest periods. There is no need to worry about the rain, because the wheater here is generally clear.

Taormina is in an exceptional geographical location, halfway along the Ionian coast between Messina and Catania. It's a great place for nature excursions, as well as to visit the Isola Bella and Mazzarò.

Taormina has always been a popular holiday destination, the perfect place to breathe the air of the Mediterranean and escape from daily routine. Its tourist strauctures offer excellent restaurants, bars, even on the sea, equipped and certified sports and leisure facilities to meet the most demanding guests.
