“If you have a car, don't miss the scenic drive north along Strada Panoramica to see the gorgeous, rugged coastline of Capo Milazzo. At the end of the isthmus is a lighthouse; park in the nearby lot, from where short walks lead to the Santuario Rupestre di San Antonio da Padova and the Piscina di Venere.”
“Ancient Tyndaris was strategically situated on its prominent hill overlooking the wide bay of the Tyrrhenian Sea bounded by the Punta di Milazzo on the east, and the Capo Calavà on the west. It was one of the latest of all the cities in Sicily that could claim a purely Greek origin, having been founded by the elder Dionysius in 396 or 395 BC. Considerable ruins of the ancient city are visible today. It occupied the whole plateau or summit of the hill, and the remains of the ancient walls may be traced, at intervals, all round the brow of the cliffs, except in one part, facing the sea, where the cliff is now quite precipitous. The chief monuments, of which the ruins are still extant within the circuit of the walls, are: -the theatre, of which the remains are in imperfect condition, but sufficient to show that it was not of large size, and apparently of Roman construction, or at least, like that of Tauromenium, rebuilt in Roman times upon the Greek foundations -a propylaeum with two handsome stone arches (previously called a Gymnasium) -several other edifices of Roman times, but of wholly uncertain character, a mosaic pavement and some Roman tombs. Openings Hours: Mon – Sun 9 am – 6:30 pm Via del Teatro Greco, 98066 Tindari Tel. 0941 369023”
