Among all stairways you have ever seen, this is definitely one of the most unusual. You have probably already realized that this is not a real ladder, but a spectacular stretch of coast that thanks to its peculiarity has become an icon of the Sicilian seaside tourism.
This white cliff is located along the stretch of the sea between Realmonte and Porto Empedocle (Agrigento) and its rock is made of a soft, limestone and blinding white marl. Nature, as a great artist, has worked this material over time, making it soft and sinuous, with the help of the sea and the salty breeze, creating terraces and smoothing every corner.
The sea, taking advantage of this sparkling white, will be showing off his blue.
The name Scale of the Turks seems to derive from the fact that in ancient times the ships of marauding Arabs and Turks found shelter in this bay.
