Photographer's Note

The castle in San Nicola l’Arena, a charming fishing village, was built in the 1400s at the behest of the Crispo family, meant to serve as a coastal lookout post. Its circular tower is enriched with an upper terrace. Inside, three circular salons are connected by a staircase. Three smaller towers, outside, are connected by a terrace. Some small apartments are situated under the terraces. The castle has three impressive secret tunnels: the first leads to a neighboring Norman tower dating from around the 13th century, the second to a castle located in Trabia, the third to the local countryside.
