  • Capo Soprano is a lively and wide quarter and it represents the real hearth of the city by my point of you. Many bars and fast food, take away restaurants. Don't miss to visit the 'Mura Timoleontee' (...  more »

  • Gela, where lies the neighborhood of caposoprano, has a defensive system of the Greek city walls, which are a testimony of inestimable archaeological value. Discovered in 1948, witnessing a military defensive system of high engineering. In front of them consumed the bloodiest battles between Greeks and Carthaginians. Are massive walls which in places reach a height of about 10 meters, perfectly preserved despite the fragility of the materials used, sandstone and mud bricks, almost impossible to keep after 2400 years, the result of the high degree of engineering referred before they said. A large park, overlooking the sea, was created around them to allow a visit of high cultural value in a landscaped environment pleasantly relaxing. Not far from the Park in the same area, you can admire the most sophisticated and well preserved thermal plant, the oldest discovered in Italy and which will then be taken as a model by the Romans for buildings of Roman baths complex.

  • Nice
  • "MURA TIMOLONTEE" these walls made rose to defend the city well 2500 years ago have been preserved so well thanks to fine sand that in all these centuries have them condoms from wind erosion. In years past there was succeeding the man to destroy them by covering completely the ashlars with transparent panels that the Sun was Burnin, but fortunately today are well protected with a wooden structure. But the real problem with this site is the unwillingness to place them in the tourist circuit of the wonders that Sicily has to offer.
