Caltabellotta

Caltabellotta
The Essential
Caltabellotta enjoys a superb location perched on a steep rocky spur at an altitude of around 900m, which its name Kal'at al-ballut ("Fortress of the Oaks"), of Arab origin, sums up perfectly. The most interesting part is right at the top of the village. If it is open, be sure to go inside the church, Chiesa Madre, which was built in 1061 by Roger of Sicily.
