Ceramiche artistiche Sammartino e Delfino, Caltagirone

4.3
#2 of 12 in Things to do in Caltagirone
Vibrantly colored ceramics with swirling patterns and detailed designs flourish within the old town of Ceramiche artistiche Sammartino e Delfino. Long famous for its production of pottery and ceramics, this town has a proud artisanal history displayed throughout the buildings, shops, and streets. Though there are a number of palaces and churches to discover, the highlight is the Scalinata di Santa Maria del Monte. This monumental 142-step staircase connects the lower part of town with the older upper town, and each step is decorated with different ceramic patterns. This staircase is the setting for two noteworthy festivals: the enormous floral displays of the Infiorita at the end of May, and the Illuminata at the end of July, in which thousands of candles flicker along the many steps.

    Accompanied by a local friend, after seeing this store, I did not want to see more, I found what I was looking for!

    Day's Taormina and Catania. Staff where to go one day. I chose caltagirone. Great views from embedded ceramic staircase climbs. 1tsu1tsu going into the shop, features shops on either side of the stairs is also valuable. I think good things come hard to buy in other locations, such as handwriting plate to buy. Located in tourist destinations are copying the signs so cheap it was. It was also left halfway up the stairs to the lunch. Was booking a little ahead, but a quiet outdoor location was good.
