La Scala dei Turchi in Realmonte on the southern coast of Sicily are white cliffs that pour into the sea. The cliffs are made of a type of marl or marlstone, a hard-mud material that is a combination of calcium carbonate and lime mixed with other types of clay and silt. Like the Cliffs of Dover in England, La Scala dei Turchi possess a white, chalky color.
It’s a sight to see, and one we’ll be taking in on Day 3 of our Enchanting Sicily tour this September. Let’s experience this wonder of Mother Earth together! Contact me, Allison Scola, at Experience Sicily for more details.
