The old villages of the Peloritani Mountains
The ridge of the Peloritani characterises the north-eastern cusp of Sicily thanks to its immense historical, cultural and natural heritage. The breathtaking beauty of these mountains, which separate the Ionian coast from the Tyrrhenian one, is a surplus value that makes Messina a unique province in Sicily. The Peloritani mountains boast enchanting small villages, rich in history, traditions and cultures overlooking stunning landscapes. On the one side, there is the Ionian Sea, characterised by a deep blue colour, the beautiful promontories of Sant’Alessio Siculo and Taormina, and the fantastic bay of Giardini Naxos. On the other side, there is the light blue of the Tyrrhenian Sea with the nice peninsula of Milazzo, the high promontory of Tindari, the colourful beach of Marinello and the wonderful Aeolian archipelago on the background.
