Geographically Capo d'Orlando lies on the northern coast of Sicily, with the view of the Aeolian Islands, between Cape Calavà and Cefalu.
The landscape and the views
There are at least three points, almost astronomical observatories, from which you can enjoy the view of the picturesque landscape that Capo d'Orlando has to offer. The first from Scafa high, gaze dominates the blue sea, the bay and the port, you glimpse a view of the village S. Gregory, go beyond, the stacks, still coves, the cone downwards Cape; right, almost on the horizon the silhouettes of the Aeolian Islands, Lipari and Vulcano with almost attacked, Salina, Filicudi and Alicudi far. A Catutè high, the fortresses of Sciamma, the other point. Sitting, left a view that stretches up to the Rock of Cefalu, downward domains all the green of the Plains and the extension of the village citizen until the foothills of the Cape, and even the Aeolian Islands and you spot, between Vulcano and Lipari, Panarea , and also the right Capo Milazzo. How to sum up, if you get in the top of the head, 360 degree experience the beautiful vistas of Capo d'Orlando.E the morphological structure and geology of the Cape, on top of which stand the Sanctuary with the remains of the walls of the fortification the castle, then, is unique even from a scientific perspective: "flysch of Capo d'Orlando" were called stratification cross sandstone rock, unfortunately subject to the slow but inexorable erosion by water and wind. On the north-west of the Cape, from the third last flight of stairs after a recent planting of eucalyptus trees, a path that, for a dense pine forest, leading the way down, to the lighthouse. On other fronts, shrubs and Mediterranean.
Capo d'Orlando has about 13,000 inhabitants, which tripled during the summer, by virtue of the presence in residences, apartments and hotels, thousands of tourists who stay there.
However, throughout the year the city is a point of reference throughout the hinterland to the vibrancy, diversity and elegance of the shops, for the many students who attend various secondary schools, for meeting places, recreation and entertainment offering many public houses.
The sea, the sea bed and fauna
The sea is the element of life-giving energy and the fantastic setting of this small town: a few meters from every part of the town to be on the beach of sand and gravel that extends for several kilometers in a perfectly straight with the vision of the Aeolian Islands. Exposure to winds, currents, water exchange continuously, make the sea of Capo d'Orlando ideal for bathing at least five months a year, from May to September. The beach, then, has two distinctive features: long, wide and sandy stretch in front of the town; sandy coves, stretches of cliffs and rocks to the east of the Cape, to the village S. Gregory, the port, Head of Monaco. Right here, at a depth of no more than i10 meters, the luckiest and most skilled can make some cerniotta game bag and some pretty good bream, hidden in burrows and crevices of the rock. Moving out to sea, at a distance of circa400 metridalla shore, we find "'u Scogghiu du zu Petru" and, in the depths of 12 -15 meters, sea bream and sea bass in considerable number, some groupers and octopuses discrete dimensioni.A San Gregorio , just in front of the Hotel "The Turtle", to circa500 metrial off, in10 metridi bottom, it is a flat rock with numerous cracks where bream of all sizes roam calm and confident. Continuing along the beach the bottom side loses interest while hunting becomes full of ideas for fans of underwater photography; play of light and shadows along the walls of rocks, small caves and tunnels covered with urchins and small branches of gorgonie.Giunti up to the lighthouse from the cliffs called "canaleddi", begins the most interesting for divers: it is the cliff of "ants" that starting from the ground continues, heading north-west to a500 metrial off, to die on a sandy bottom of circa20 meters. From the beginning it affects the large movement of fish, especially bream of good size, that enlivens the backdrop. Finning to sea, suddenly they begin to appear the first groupers; the behavior is always the same: a few seconds to spark and then off, like lightning, in spacche dark and deep; It is the penalty, so the help of a good flashlight. A circa300 metridalla beach emerges the first "swarming" with a split center where, in the early morning and at sunset, you can undermine bass of good size. From this point on the seabed may be pleasantly surprised, both for the large amount of white fish and burrow for the presence, in times of step, of amberjack, sea bass and sea bream reaching a respectable weight of oltre40 Kg. In the end between 3 and i6 metrii amateurs can enjoy the many mullets. Also in this stretch of sea fans of photography and filming, they can indulge themselves in competition shots by exploiting the effects that light creates through the tunnels and cracks that fill up the bottom three Formicole. A fans dell'Ara (Auto Air respirator, the so-called cylinders ed) recommend diving on the reef 27, a dry so named for the backdrop in which you find that is 27 steps of water; this is a true paradise of flora and fauna underwater where you can see performances of underwater life that we recall from Folco Quilici. A minor detail: we are in Sicily and elsewhere in Polynesia!
CAPO D'ORLANDO originates from an ancient Sicilian town called "Agatirno" from the name of its founder, son of Aeolus, founded at the time of the Trojan War (1218 BC). Its existence is attested both by historians and ancient geographers (Diodorus, Pliny, Ptolemy ......) and by modern scholars including Meli and Fazello.
The ancient city was to include, in addition to the area of the promontory and part of today's city center, the districts of S. Martino, Certari, Catutè, S. Gregory and Scafa. E 'likely that the extension of the city and the development of its civilization from the immediate hills in ancient times, have been extended to the coast and the promontory with the arrival of the Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans.
The Consul Levino nel209 BC is tied a dark and dramatic episode of its history: the deportation of about 4,000 men in Calabria, "society composed of thieves, criminals and outcasts," says Livy.
The Damiano, in his essay "Nebrodi, Val Demon, Agatirno, mysteries of ancient history" recently gave a shocking interpretation of the episode. It 'possible that Agatirno was the center, in the Nebrodi, the Dionysian cult and that these rites were poorly tolerated by the Romans, who found an excuse to deport the ancient Orlandini.
Meanwhile Agatirno testimonies have come to light at different times: in the last century found a marble tombstone of Roman in the current urban center (Villa Cangemi) together with grave goods proving the existence of a necropolis; other tombs, skeletons and phitos came to light in 1980 and in 1989 during the excavation work being Letizia.
The most significant finding came to light in February 1986 in the village of Bagnoli, adjacent to the port building, there were remains of a spa area that is part of an ancient Roman Villa.
As Agatirno has, at the time of the coming of the Normans, passed the name of Capo d'Orlando is still an issue shrouded in mystery and legend.
Goffredo da Viterbo, chaplain of Charlemagne, attests that it was the French emperor to call the Cape in honor of its famous champion.
It is not excluded that "Agatirno", considered pagan name was deleted by the Normans too tied to the Church of Rome.
On 4 June 1299, the sea of Capo d'Orlando was the scene of a tremendous battle between two brothers contending the Aragonese throne of Sicily: Giacomo and Federico.
The destruction of the castle on the promontory is linked, a century later, the episode of the siege suffered by Baron Bartholomew Aragon by Bernardo Cabrera Count of Modica, speditovi by King Martino.
There are reports of pirate raids on the shores orlandini in 1589 and in September 1594, and the tower of the head, continued to accommodate guards in weapons that provided the sighting of the Algerian pirates.
The erection of the Sanctuary (1600) built on the ruins of the castle, however, is linked to the discovery of a tiny statue of the Madonna, who became the patron saint of Capo d'Orlando.
Meanwhile, in the lands of Malvern, from the fifteenth century, it had established the culture of "cannamele". In defense of crops and associated trade by Barons of Naso it was erected a tower with associated works fortilizie and an oil mill for processing sugar.
In the area of St. Gregory, however, it was planted a trap, which covered the stretch of sea between Capo d'Orlando and Cape Calavà.
In the mid-1800s, the slopes north-west of the cape, it formed the nucleus of the new urban center mainly inhabited by fishing families, while in the Plains to the cultivation of mulberry trees and vines began to graft the citrus fruit, in particular that of lemons, which until now has been one of the pillars of the economy Orlandina.
Construction of SS 113 Messina-Palermo, and the SS 116 Capo d'Orlando - Randazzo and the completion of the railway in the territory Orlandino in 1895, allowed a considerable development of trade citrus, as well as the beginning of a growing economic development and urban planning.
At the beginning of this century it was born the first feelings of autonomy from the Municipality of Naso, who was granted after a long series of popular demonstrations, with L. June 25, 1925 n. 1170.
On 27 September 1925 it was inaugurated the new City of Capo d'Orlando.

The most important thing about this house is that feeling of "wow!" once you open the garden backdoor. There's the beach, the Tyrrhenian Sea with its incredibly intense color, the view of the Aeolian Islands on the horizon, and it's all just a few seconds and a turn of the key away from your holiday apartment.
We and our small sons spent a lot of happy hours on that beach, which was never too crowded, even in early August. (Note, though, that it's a stony beach, relatively steep, and the waves can be strong if it's windy. Our six-year old liked it better than the four-year old.)
The apartment's other big selling point is the garden with its trampoline, children's slide and its chair ensemble. What a nice place to unwind after a stuffy day. It was almost *too* nice for our wild, crazy sons, and I was at times concerned they would uproot some plants or smudge the white seat covers. (Probably, this was just in my head, as Francesco and Monica were nice, helpful, always reachable hosts very fond of the children.)
The apartment itself is, to my mind, the weakest argument for renting this casa vacanza. It is large enough, modern, very clean, with AC in the living room, it has a large fridge, three (! ) TV sets, a shower, a bath tub, wifi, a washing machine, bikes to borrow, generally everything ... but I also found it a bit too dark and lacking in character. This is complaining on a very high level, though, and surely just a matter of taste.
The traffic on the small but busy road in front of the house, on the other hand, I got used to pretty quickly. Capo d'Orlando is a buzzing holiday town, and this is a large part of the fun. There is a small store within walking distance, and you'll find entertainment, some shopping and restaurant options downtown two kilometers away. If you have a car, which I'd recommend, you can park it conveniently in the yard. The access gate is very wide by Italian standards, a great relief.
There's lots to see in the immediate surroundings, but we also made day trips to Messina, Mount Etna and Vulcano island from here; Palermo is also reasonably close. So this apartment is a good base camp for exploring most of the North coast of Sicily.
Franscesco og Monica var allerede inden afrejsen i dialog med os om, hvad vi behøvede at medbringe og hvad der var i huset. Det var dejligt, da vi så ikek behøvede at medbringe håndklæder til stranden etc. De har været behjælpsomme hele ferien og vi har følt os meget velkomne. Dwe har lavet opslag i huset med diverse afresser til supermarked og lign., så det hele er let at gå til. De har stillet mælk og frugt, kaffe og lign. frem i køleskabet til den første morgen, hvilket opleves fantastisk, når man ankommer sent. Der var også sæbe, shampoo, vaskepulver og lign. i huset. Helt igennem en dejlig oplevelse.
We (a family of five) spent a wonderful week in Sicily with base in Cape D'Orlando.
We arrived late but it was no problem and Francesco had even bought a bit of food and water so we easily could settle down after our journey.
The house was well equipped with two bathrooms and had a beautiful garden with direct access to the beach.
The free parking inside the gates was a great bonus as there were limited parking space on the street outside.
The town of Cape D'Orlando was mostly visited by Italian tourists which helped contribute to an authentic Sicilian atmosphere. By car it is easy to get to Milazzo from where boats depart to the Lipari Islands - something we can highly recommend. Palermo and Mt. Etna are somewhat further away but still quite manageable trips when based in Cape D'Orlando.
This family made us feel very welcome when we arrived. Francesco didn't speak English, but he had his daughter tell us some of the things that he couldn't really show us easily. Which worked out great. No problem with this whatsoever. They had supplied some food and drinks upon our arrival, which was fantastic since we were exhausted. Monica brought us some pastries as well the first day. We stayed four nights, and this was after traveling in Italy for 18 days beforehand. This was a great location and property to just unwind. The beach was rocky as expected but the water was wonderful. The yard was very beautiful, but we didn't spend a lot of time there. The kitchen is well equipped and the supermarket was easily found. We did take the bikes out a couple of days which was lovely. If there was a drawback, it would be the amount of traffic on the street. But since we had just come from Naples where there was traffic 24/7 and fireworks going off constantly, this didn't bother us at this location. The off-street parking was a bonus! I would highly recommend this property, and if I ever were to go back to Sicily I would stay here again!
abbiamo trascorso una settimana a giugno e ci siamo trovati veramente molto bene! Monica e Francesco sono stati veramente ottimi padroni di casa nonché gentilissimi e di grande disponibilità . la casa si trova in una posizione ottimale (praticamente sul mare!) e il giardino e' un luogo di grande relax .Posizione ottimale x visitare anche le localita' nei dintorni. Grazie ancora e un saluto ai simpaticissimi proprietari.
We had a lovely 4 night stay here. Garden was wonderful for relaxing in and enjoying the beautiful weather. Hosts were very helpful but also left us to relax and enjoy ourselves. Was a lovely touch to have some food and drinks for us when we arrived. Location is right on the beach. A stroll down the beach takes you into town. Apartment had everything we needed.
Very welcoming and helpful.
Great garden space and gate out to the wide open beach and sea. Perfect for a chilled out sea break, even with 2 young kids it was relaxing.
Hosts very kindly let us make use of kids scooter and bikes.
Nice to arrive to a few basic bits of food and drink.
Really nice, it's out of main if town centre in a quieter spot so check location suits you if considering booking.
Would love to stay again.
