Castello di Schiṣ


Visits: 2167
The visitor that begins a journey to Schiṣ Castle on the headland of ancient Naxos, may admire a place that has seen the sun rise over the many civilisations of the Mediterranean. The fortification was built to preside over the bay of Naxos but in 1800s it was extended into a fine, noble building from where one could enjoy the view of Taormina and the blue of the surrounding sea.
Who accesses it still can read between the stones of its ancient walls, like the pages of an old, charmingly manuscript, throughout history, rulers and battles that have left indelible mark in time.
