Places to know and visit
Playa Marianello, an uncontaminated beach famous for its "timpe", a wall with white gullies right behind the beach. The Mollarella beach, inside a suggestive bay delimited by two rocky promontories, is the most famous beach on the southern coast of Sicily. The beach of San Nicola, smaller and wilder because of its rocks. The beach of Torre di Gaffe, at the base of a cliff covered in the typical vegetation of the mediterranean scrub and on top of which there is a centuries-old sighting tower.
The San Giacomo Lighthouse, one of the highest in Europe (40 meters high) is the symbol of the city. From here, it is possible to admire unique landscapes.
Castel Sant'Angelo, built by the Borboni in the 1640 with a baroque style. Located on the namesake hill 150 meters on the sea level, today it hosts the ethnological museum of the city. This hill was once called "Ecmo" and here many evidences of the ancient Finziade (greek/roman city built by Finzia, tyrant of Akragas, after the destruction of Gela) were found; they are now collected in the archeological museum of the Badia.
The Grangela, a hydraulic structure of the hellenic age. Following this itinerary through different ages, the tourists arrive in Piazza Progresso, where the Palazzo di Città is situated; this castle was built by the architect Ernesto Basile, main representative of the sicilian "Liberty" and of the italian modernism, between first years of the 1900 and the 1940s. Inside Palazzo di Città many works of art are collected, like greek marble medallions with the faces of the founders of Gela and the statue of the Madonna con il Bambino, dated back to the fifteenth century.
Noble villas on the hill of Monserrato that surrounds the city: Villa Sapio Rumbolo, Villa Urso, Villa Lumia, Villa Giuliana and the beautiful Villa Verderame. For those who appreciate the sumptuous baroque style, there are Palazzo Bosio and Palazzo Frangipane, both in the historical centre.
The Stagnone Pontillo, an underground complex born as a place of worship and necropolis but used as a water tank during the arabian domination. The site is probably dated back to the bronze age and consists of two artificial caves excavated in the rock: there are circular tombs and graffiti written in ancient mediterranean languages.
The Church of Santa Maria la Nuova, built during the Renaissance with baroque details, is famous for the wooden crucifix (called "Black Christ") of the second half of the fifteenth century. According to the legend, the turkish invaders set fire to the crucifix which was miraculously only blackened.
The Church of Sant'Agostino, built in the 1611. Inside, there is the wooden simulacrum of the Madonna Addolorata who, according to the legend, survived a shipwreck and ended up on the sicilian coast.
The Church of Sant'Angelo, a pilgrimage destination where the relics of the saint are preserved. The nature lovers will appreciate the visit to the Isolotto di San Nicola, in front of the beach of Rocca di San Nicola and of Pisciotto. With its rich marine flora and fauna, it is the perfect place for scuba diving. Many greek/roman findings and wrecked ships were found on its bottom.
The historical center of Licata is an outdoor museum with its baroque buildings and twentieth-century villas on the hill. But beside the cultural tourism, Licata also offers many shops and boutiques (clothing and souvenir) located in Piazza Progresso, Corso Roma, Corso Umberto and Corso Vittorio Emanuele. In the lighthouse area and in the Piazzetta Attilio Regolo there are numerous night clubs where the tourists can spend fun summer evenings.
