  • Great place and wonderful (but small) historic centre!
  • Magic - even more if you visit the castle in a hot summer afternoon.

  • The Tarantula ballad to Acaya! It was the first time we chanced to witness this atavistic dance that has its origins in the Dionysian dithyramb. Has had on us a great impression and unforgettable for its primordiality: the bacchantes.
