In his book "Italian Journey", Goethe wrote:
“To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is to not have seen

which is one of the main tourist attractions in Sciacca.

a nice clean beach,
and some volcanic rocks.

and my best yellow daisy panorama to date.

Goethe was in Sciacca...

During a walk through the city, we happened some old doors,
numerous apartment porches with a view of the sea,
the town hall plaza (360 degree photo)
stairs decorated with ceramic tiles,
and of course, the ubiquitous asterisk in the pavement

sidewalk in Pittsburgh)
a mighty long view from the restaurant plaza above Sciacca Harbor

and a couple of views at sea level to my delight...
and finally, a full moonset view from the balcony of our room at the
Grand Hotel in Sciacca.
