In this short article we present two places in Italy that can be considered authentic jewels of southern Italy of scenic beauty. Which one have you already visited?
Arco Magno beach in San Nicola Arcella, in the province of Cosenza (Calabria)
It looks like a natural arch extending over a strip of sea, a secret inlet carved out of the rocks. The beach is located a short distance from Praia a Mare and the Island of Dino and can be reached either by arriving by boat from the sea or via a path carved into the rock. This wild and unspoiled place is characteristic for the rocks overlooking the sea, the wonderful caves and the changing colors of the water.
Oriented Natural Reserve of the Zingaro, Trapani, Sicily
The Zingaro oriented nature reserve is a protected natural area located west of the Gulf of Castellammare in the municipalities of Castellammare del Golfo and San Vito Lo Capo, in the province of Trapani, in Sicily.
Established in 1981, it is managed by the State Forestry Company of the Sicilian Region. The Zingaro coast is one of the very few stretches of coast in Sicily that is not contaminated by the presence of a coastal road.
The area was inhabited by a last peasant family until about 1960, in the house that is now the weaving museum, renovated in 2013. The inhabitants used mules to transport goods and water. Today for the transport of waste and goods in general, mules are always used, the only possible means of transport.
