“Great views!”
Review of Torre Bennistra

Torre Bennistra
Reviewed 6 April 2018

The tower is visible over the center of town, and there is plenty of free parking. We were there off season, so we parked on the street near the trail head. The hike is short, but this time of year it is lined with every kind of flower imaginable! The panoramic view from the platform around the base of the tower is spectacular. We failed to check if the door was open to the tower, but we really did not need to enter to get the fantastic views!

There's not not much to di in Scopello, and this is a kick and nice climb that rewards you with a nice view and a feeling of accomplishment. Just be careful after is has rained, the soil is sticky like chewing gum!

This Torre has been well restored. The climb looks daunting from below, but actually it is quite easy. And the enhanced view or the bay is well worth the effort.

If you are visiting Scopello or Lo Zingaro, and if you are on the west coast of Sicily, you must, don't miss this little gem. Tucked off the side of the road, this is a very old tower, with foundations dating back more than a thousand years. One of the many fascinating historical sights to see in Sicily.

This is a nice and easy 20 min walk from Scopello. The tower, part of an observation network to monitor invaders and pirates, has been recently restores. The views are superb and worth the walk.
