    This place is not easy to get to but once you have traveled to Caltabellotta and by car climbed the narrow last climb to the Church you can enjoy stunning views and a great atmosphere of one of the historic sites where all invaders of Sicily have been. If you have the energy we recommend you to also climb the Big rock opposite. It may look dilapidated and hard to climb but is quite Safe and not to exhausting.

    There is a car park at the bottom of the steps which already has a lovely view. If you are energetic you can climb the steps and get another stunning view and see the nice buildings. It was closed on our visit but apparently when open you can visit the caves underneath which have nice wall paintings from long ago.

    We thought this quite an interesting and well-presented exhibition of local artist/sculpture Salvatore Razzati who now we were told teaches in Palermo. He works in various mediums, and some were quite impressive and thought provoking, a number related to aspects of Sicilian history, e.g. Vespers, which incidentally were signed in 1302 in what now remains of the Norman castle (pizzu), but a short distance from the museum. Very helpful (curator?) who explained many aspects of the exhibition.
    On the ground floor, in addition to Christmas work by local children, some metal work which was perhaps not quite so impressive and not very well displayed. Overall though, well worth a visit; and it's free.

    The remains of this 12th century castle are closed due to dangerous collapse but you can still get in through the fence. There are countless steep steps giving stunning views of the landscape around. You cannot reach the very top due to fencing in the way and collapsing footpath. However it is still worth a visit and does not take long. There is supposed to be more remains of the castle behind the cathedral.

    Worth looking in if you are having a coffee in the square. Nicely decorated inside with painted scenes and plasterwork with gold.

    This is a newly restored church in the picturesque and historic little town of Caltabellotta. The church, similar to others in Sicily, is devoid of windows, and has a nice entrance door with a Norman arch. There are same interesting paintings inside.

    This village has a long and ancient history. I found out about these pagan altars through online research. See the website for more info about other ancient sites in the town.
    In the high part of the town on the edge of a cliff behind the main cathedral is what has been identified as a sacrificial altar to Kronos. It was used in the Greek and Roman age. In Sicily, the cult of Kronos was practiced principally in the west. There are two other altars in the vicinity.
    They are situated on a very dramatic cliff edge with stunning views, but there are no signs to it. You can find it marked on Google maps.
