  • This is the heart of Scilla with a long history, famous for the architecture and the traditional hunting of swordfish. Fishermen culture may enjoy during the hunting period from May to September.

  • The beach could be cleaner... Well there was quite a lot of plastic and it didn't seem to bother anyone... Anyway, the place is magical with the beautiful castle and colourful houses.
  • Unique stylish settlment, set up on different elevations. Worth of visiting
