Finding a hotel near Agrigento can sometimes be a dull daydream so that you can put together a place to stay close enough to the city’s beauty but at the same time quiet, without many tourists and where meeting real sicily is not easy.
Deciding to stay in a hotel near Agrigento is definitely a rewarding choice. Sicily is full of small towns with no more than 10,000 inhabitants. The province of Agrigento is made up of 40 municipalities that generally live in fishing, agriculture and some of tourism. Some of them are out of the great tourist streams and retain their true Sicilian image where people know each other and everyday is marked by the chimes of the mother church bells.
Racalmuto is one of these. The name of the country probably derives from the Arabic Rahal Maut may be translated as “Dead or Perched Village” because it stood above the ruins of another ancient country.
A small country with few thousand inhabitants, with a very lively historical center and many stories to tell. Perhaps the most popular story is that of Leonardo Sciascia, born in Racalmuto in 1921 and died in Palermo in 1989, who was an Italian writer, journalist, essayist, politician, poet and playwright. Every corner of the country is pervaded by places, memories and symbols of his life and his works. The castle, the Sciascia Foundation, its statue on the sidewalk that depicts it while walking and clinging to its cigarette, the Theater, its home, the Circle. Sciascia was a great Italian public figure and the last of the awards was to be included in the cultural itinerary The Road of Writers who see Racalmuto every year in May as the protagonist of cultural, gourmet, and grand musical events.
