Have you ever imagined to visit a place where the sun and the sea are joined by a long and breathless hug? Then you have never been to Marzamemi. It is a small fishing village in the south of Sicily, near the city of Syracuse. Its original name is “Marsà al hamen” from the Arabic. The ancient borgo dates back to around the 18th century with the Villadorata family. It rises and develops along the coast where the Ionic and the Mediterranean seas meet under the sun in the morning and under the moon in the night. The beauty of the Church of Saint Francesco, the patron Saint, the majesty of Piazza Regina Margherita and of the huge Tonnara leave the visitors breathless. All around the fishermen’s houses and the characteristic area called “the Balata” full of cafès, restaurants and all types of entertainment. Not far from the centre of the village, there is the magnificent Brancati Island, “the place of the soul” , which is today a private villa chosen as the location of several important cultural events. Thus Marzamemi is a place in the hearth of Sicily which should be kept up and valued since it is the direct evidence of our natual beauty to be protected. If you want to live suspended between dream and reality, or let yourself be carried away by the sound of the waves, please visit Marzamemi!.
