La Cala

The cala was the former port of the city. It was defended by the Castellammare fortress, built by the Moors. The fort was transformed and became a prison as well as a private residence! But this imposing building was damaged in 1922 by the extension of the new jetty. The Cala district today extends behind the former port.
