HOTELS IN CASTELLAMMARE DEL GOLFO
The Hotel Sopra le Mura looks over the splendid panorama of the Harbour of Castellammare del Golfo: a romantic spot for couples in love, a fun and dynamic holiday destination for the younger, a surprising and relaxing setting for families with children.
Along the northwestern coast of Sicily there are places designed to amaze you. The Harbour of Castellammare del Golfo is one of these. It lies open between S. Vito Lo Capo and Punta Raisi, halfway between the harbour of Palermo and Trapani. To the east you can see its pier and a quay built at the foot of the Norman Castle while to the west a cliff-top pier, Molo Nord. The natural coast of the gulf extends between the two piers and the adjacent quay: kilometres of golden sand that gradually give way to coloured pebbles and rocks. These beaches are the most popular destination during the long months of the Sicilian summer, both for locals and for tourists who come from all over the world.
THE HARBOUR OF CASTELLAMMARE
By day,the water, the mirror of the harbour is populated by small catamarans that take tourists to the caves and inaccessible beaches of the area's nature reserve; by night, by the tireless fishing boats that go to sea.
Then in the evening, when the colourful lights of the maritime city are turned on, the harbour becomes a privileged setting for pubs, restaurants and trattorias serving fish specialties. This is the heart of the nightlife of Castellammare del Golfo and in this atmosphere the Hotel Sopra le Mura offers its guests the opportunity to live the best experiences during their holidays.
It becomes a moment of remembrance when, each day you can walk across to our kiosk just a few steps away from the hotel and enjoy a good glass of Sicilian wine in company or quench your thirst with a lemon granita or delight your palate and mood with the splendid desserts of our local pastries: a must is, for example , the tasting of cassatelle, fried pastry shaped pouches filled with ricotta cheese and chocolate chips.
