Caltabellotta

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