The most densely populated centre of the protected area, the ancient Turrisi Octavia is known for its thriving coral industry and its interesting museum.

But other sites of considerable historical importance deserve to be visited, such as the Neoclassical Church of Santa Croce, Palazzo Vallelonga, Villa del Cardinale, Villa Porta and the epitaph in honour of Philip IV of Spain. In addition, you can’t miss the evocative view offered by the convent of Camaldoli della Torre and Villa delle Ginestre that hosted Giacomo Leopardi.
