Description

The history of Calatabiano is closely linked to its castle, located 160 meters above the sea level. Calatabiano Castle was founded by the Arabs, who moved from Calatabiano to conquer Taormina in 902. The Arab presence in Calatabiano is clearly visible from the name of the town, which is divided in Kalaat, meaning castle, and Bian, likely name of the local lord or possibly ‘bianco', meaning white.

The castle can also be reached by an elevator.

The uphill walk is pleasant, but should be done early in the morning before you start to feel the heat.
