Famous for its pottery, the streets of the city are embellished with decorated vases of all shapes and colors. The architecture of the historic center is heavily influenced by Arab and Norman influences, which is why the city is surrounded by thick defensive walls of the 1300s and 1500s interspersed from time to time by ancient gates, such as San Calogero, Salvatore (the most beautiful of all) etc. among which there are splendid palaces of the aristocracy of the past.
The city, built with an amphitheater shape, overlooks the sea along a spur called Coda di Volpe. The beaches, however, are outside the city. About 7 km away is the Capo San Marco beach, which can be reached by car and then on foot along a path shaded by palm trees, while heading south you arrive at Torre del Barone Beach at the foot of a dazzling white cliff.
