Full description
You will start the visit of the ghost town from the Church of Candelora, in which is kept the statue of the Madonna and Child by D. Mazzuolo. You will enter the heart of the village and pass through the ancient wash houses to reach the door that led to the Castle. As soon as you reach the destination, the guide will tell you about the"tragedy of the Alberti", a family of feudal marquises who lived in the Castle; you will then admire the funeral chapel of the family of the same name, in the Church of S.S.Apostles Peter and Paul. During the visit of Pentadattilo, name given to the curious morphology of the hand-shaped rock on which the village lies, the private guide will be ready to satisfy all the curiosities related to the place. Then you will return to the square, the starting point, walking along the main street where you can visit the many houses that have been renovated and now house craft stores, libraries and small museums.
