  • Salvatore Quasimodo literary Park is a must for anyone visiting the riviera. The location is very impressive, well cared for in every detail. Also included in the tour there is also the visit of the Saracen Tower. Excellent and very detailed explanation of the Guide. Absolutely 5 stars!

  • Never been able to visit him in more than ten years in the area. Always closed. At least this year he inserted a clear signage to reach it, but to make an visit you need to call because only open in a few days. Keep it open at least in August, right? I'd be curious to visit.

  • I made the nocturnal visit to the Parco Letterario Quasimodo Saturday, August 20, 2016. The tour consisted of an insignificant statement of marginal episodes about Salvatore Quasimodo, or rather his family of origin, without saying anything of the poet's literary and artistic life in the transmission of some short videos related to the awarding of the Nobel Prize. This first phase, lasting unjustifiably over one hour, took place in three rooms of the old railway station of Roccalumera where there are, in addition to some wall murals, news articles and various certifications, also a large quantity of things absolutely alien to the literary Park as, for example, dozens of cardboard boxes bearing the mark of bleach ACE and an old HP). The second phase, faster, was held inside three old passenger cars, the first of them with non-functional lighting, at whose walls were hung poems and pictures, in part already seen in the first phase, concerning the poet. After the selection of a bar, which I could only see some white plastic tables and nothing else, we were entrusted to a boy, the apparent age of 14-15 years, who drove us to the old Saracen Tower. The tower is only visible on floor at street level and the "Guide", possibly embarrassed offered us an almost robotic system description. Disappointing the cultural offerings, but even more disappointing the "random" opening a store of honey and sweets next to the tower at the time of our arrival, it was 22.30 and the clarification made by the cashier at the Park to teachers about the usability of its receipt in culture increase account "offered by the Government."
