A beautiful site to see

The "Scala dei Turchi" or "Stairway of the Turks" in English, is a very beautiful and extensive rocky cliff overlooking the sea, which is located in REALMONTE, which is eighteen kilometers away from Agrigento in Sicily. What makes this cliff so beautiful is undoubtedly its color, as it is made of a stone called Marga, which is a completely pure white sedimentary limestone, where the wind and rain through the centuries have worn away at its extensive steps.

They say that the name comes from the ancient Saracen pirate raids and Arabs (generalizing: Turks) that protected their wind-powered boats amid these cliffs. Among the beaches that dominate the Scala dei Turchi are the Rosello, Giallonardo, Le Pergole and Punta Grande, which all are covered with excellent fine sand. From this exquisite location, the turquoise blue sea is really inviting for visitors.

You can't miss it

The cliffs rising out of gorgeous, white-sand beaches are only accessible using the white stairwell carved into the rock. It is, without a doubt, a very evocative and beautiful place which surprised me even before I arrived. The sea is incredible transparent and looks even better next to the shining white steps descending into the sea. You can't miss it.

One evening in sicily

Reach the Scala dei Turchi is a more effort than justified. For starters, there are not many places to stay and park near the stairs down to the beach is a worthy mission for Tom Cruise. Resignate to tendrs sure to kick a while. After coming down the stairs. The spectacular cliffs along the narrow trail inevitable stop every 10 steps to watch the spectacle of the sea. And that is fine, but when you couple that with mutiny people with children, umbrellas, coolers, hammocks etc ... the descent becomes eternal. Once on the beach you have not reached an. Meet walk about 500m up the ramp that rises to the Scala. You've come ?, you've found a niche where to sit? have the camera ready? ... Well it's time to forget all this. It is the ideal place to enjoy a well deserved reward time. It is the time of sunset, the orange tones of the sea breeze and the smell of salt. No matter which then have to undo all the way to the car. This moment is yours and nobody will remove you. Enjoy it! ... Enjoy the ladder of Turkish ... Worth it!

Un atardecer en sicilia

Llegar a la Scala dei Turchi supone un esfuerzo más que justificado.
Para empezar, no hay muchos sitios donde alojarse y al aparcar cerca de las escaleras que bajan a la playa es una misión digna de Tom Cruise. Resignate a que seguramente tendrás que patear un rato.
Después llegan las escaleras de bajada. Los espectaculares acantilados, junto a la estrechez del sendero hace inevitable pararse cada 10 pasos a mirar el espectáculo del mar. Y eso está bien, pero cuando juntas eso con un motón de gente con niños, sombrillas, neveras, hamacas etc... la bajada se hace eterna.
Una vez en la playa aún no has llegado. Queda andar unos 500mts hasta la rampa que sube a la Scala.
Ya has llegado?, has encontrado un hueco donde sentarte? tienes la cámara preparada?...
Pues es el momento de olvidar todo lo anterior. Es el momento ideal para disfrutar de la recompensa bien merecida. Es el momento de la puesta de sol, de los tonos anaranjados, de la brisa marina y del olor a sal.
No importa que luego hayas de deshacer todo el camino hasta el coche. Este momento es tuyo y nadie te lo va a quitar.
Disfrutalo!... disfruta de la escalera del turco... Vale la pena!

Along the coast of porto empedocle

The coast Empedoclina with its crystal clear sea and beaches, stretches for three kilometers, giving life to one of the most beautiful coastlines in the Mediterranean. A few kilometers from the town of Porto Empedocles in the direction of Realmonte, is the "Scala dei Turchi", a beautiful rock wall that rises above the sea and landscape that has become an attraction for the singularity of its white chalk cliff. This particular natural conformation owes its name to the Saracen pirates who, according to an old rumor, climbed the "ladder" coming from the sea to prey on the Sicilian coast. Under the scorching summer sun terraces buy her a dazzling whiteness. In fact, time and erosion have carved the rock in order to create this spectacle of nature that receives during the summer thousands of swimmers, onlookers and tourists from all over the world.

Lungo il litorale di porto empedocle

La costa empedoclina con il suo mare cristallino e le spiagge libere, si estende per ben tre chilometri dando vita ad uno dei litorali più belli del Mediterraneo. A pochi chilometri dalla cittadina di Porto Empedocle in direzione di Realmonte, sorge la “Scala dei Turchi”, una meravigliosa parete rocciosa che si erge a picco sul mare e che è diventata un’attrazione paesaggistica per la singolarità della sua bianca scogliera di gesso. Questa particolare conformazione naturale deve il suo nome ai pirati saraceni che, secondo un’antica diceria, salivano la “scala” provenendo dal mare per depredare le coste siciliane. Sotto il cocente sole estivo i suoi gradoni acquistano un candore abbagliante. In realtà, il tempo e l’erosione hanno scavato la roccia in modo tale da creare questo spettacolo della natura che accoglie durante la bella stagione migliaia di bagnanti, curiosi e turisti da ogni parte del mondo.

Impressive cliff

"Scala dei Turchi" is rpertorie appreciates as a beach area of ​​Agrigento in the municipality of Realmonte. But it is mainly a natural curiosity of the first order because the white marl cliffs found on the southern coast of Sicily prsentent here a natural staircase to glove legs. The denomination that makes reference to the Turks had evoked me the Pamukkale site because of the whiteness of the rock, but it seems that it makes allusion rather an invading Ottomans allegedly by natural steps and climb the cliff.

Falaise impressionnante

"Scala dei Turchi" est répertoriée comme une plage appréciée des environs d'Agrigente sur la commune de Realmonte.
Mais c'est surtout une curiosité naturelle de premier ordre car les falaises de marne blanche qu'on trouve sur ce littoral sud de la Sicile présentent ici un escalier naturel pour jambes de géant.
La dénomination qui fait référence aux Turcs m'avaient évoqué le site de Pamukkale en raison de la blancheur de la roche, mais il semblerait que cela fasse plutôt allusion à une invasion d'Ottomans qui auraient ainsi par les marches naturelles escalader la falaise.

The scales are of turkish marl cliffs...

The scales are of Turkish marl cliffs south of Sicily, Agrigento. They get their name from the legend that the Turkish people have used these cliffs whose shape resembles stairs to conquer the land atop the cliffs. It is an ideal place to go sunbathing thanks to the intense glare of the sun. The beach is deserted and more!

Les echelles de turcs sont des falaises de marne au sud de la sicile, à Agrigente. Elles doivent leur nom à la légende qui dit que les populations turcs auraient utilisées ces falaises dont la forme ressemble à des escaliers pour conquérir les terres au sommet des falaises.

C'est un endroit idéal pour faire de la bronzette grace à la réverbération intense du soleil. La plage est déserte en plus!

A context heavenly!

La Scala dei Turchi is a type scoglifero wall that rises above the sea along the coast of Realmonte near Agrigento. The reef is located in the middle between two sandy beaches, consists of marl, clay-like material that has a pure white color. After reaching the top of the rock you can see the view embraces the whole coast of Agrigento. Nature creates crazy things!!

Un contesto paradisiaco!

La Scala dei Turchi è una parete di tipo scoglifero che si erge a picco sul mare lungo la costa di Realmonte vicino ad Agrigento. Tale scogliera si erge in mezzo tra 2 spiagge di sabbia fine, costituita da marna, materiale argilloso che presenta un colore bianco puro. Raggiunta la sommità della roccia il panorama che si scorge abbraccia tutta la costa agrigentina. La natura crea cose pazzesche!!!!

Essential

We spent an afternoon there, the site is spectacular ... are those places that are kept in the retina as if you had been yesterday. Recommended totally get away. Being summer, so enjoy the place with a good bathroom, but maybe too many people to make good pictures, if you go in spring, when there is less agglomeration, sure will seem much grander site.

Imprescindible

Pasamos allí una tarde, el sitio es espectacular... son de esos lugares que se mantienen en la retina como si hubieses estado ayer. Recomendable totalmente hacer una escapada. Al ser verano, pues disfruté del lugar con un buen baño, pero quizás demasiada gente para poder hacer buenas fotos, si vaís en primavera, cuando no haya tanta aglomeración, seguro que os parecerá mucho más grandioso el sitio.

Openmouthed

The first time I traveled to Sicily, looking a travel guide saw a picture of this place and thought, "I want to go there." Three years passed until I got it, but it was worth it. It is a limestone rock by the sea that leaves you speechless, in a wild place that reminds you of the glamor of the 50s, worth seeing.

Boquiabierta

La primera vez que viajé a Sicilia, mirando una guía de viajes vi una foto de este lugar y pensé: "Yo quiero ir ahí".

Pasaron tres años hasta que lo conseguí, pero valió la pena.

Es una roca caliza al lado del mar que te deja boquiabierto, en un paraje salvaje, que te recuerda al glamour de los años 50, digno de ver.

White mountain

I was in Sicily, at the scale of the Turks, a beach and mountain entirely of white stone, a unique spectacle, to take pictures for a fashion editorial English. Already knew this place, I had already done another job several years ago, but every time I see the emotions it elicits are always strong.

Montagna bianca

Mi trovavo in sicilia, alla scala dei turchi, una spiaggia e montagna completamente di pietra bianca, uno spettacolo unico, per fare delle foto di moda per un editoriale inglese. Conoscevo già questo luogo, avevo già fatto un altro lavoro diversi anni prima, ma ogni volta che la vedo le emozioni che suscita sono sempre forti.
