Castelmola, perched on the top of a cliff, can be defined as the natural panoramic balcony of Taormina; from there you can enjoy a breath-taking view of the majestic Etna Volcano with nice villages latched on its slopes, the Ionian shore, the Giardini-Naxos bay, the Strait of Messina and even the Calabrian coast.

Castelmola owes its name to the shape of the rock on which it is based, resembling a fish called mola that lives in the nearby water .

Visiting Castelmola means first of all being astonished by a wonderful landscape; then, strolling along its typical narrow, twisted alleys. The village is brimming with numerous cafés, shops and restaurants where you can stop and sip a glass of the typical, delicious almond wine.

You can also climb to the top of Mount Tauro and visit the remains of the ancient castle: a bit strenuous but absolutely worth it!
