San Vito Cape of good holiday and climbing. San Vito Lo Capo in the world, says the tourist map given as a gift for travelers. When, on the night of our arrival, the friendly host Mr. Vitus - St. Vitus, in fact - we announced that breakfast is served on the terrace someone squeezes in windbreaker jacket ... still does not know that that same happy abandon the jacket in the closet until they return to the North. Here, in times of economic crisis, to restore our local economy to suggest a local "sunshine tax" be imposed on those who come from less fortunate and the more northern lands.
The sheep track winds clay for a few kilometers, with the ramparts of rock, looking at it already, is a promise. On the one hand, dreams of climbing and a blue and smooth as the other oil. Sea, sea, sea and even the sea, everywhere, haunting presence, catharsis man of the plains. Yes, the sea is the philosopher's stone that turns some of San Vito albeit interesting cliff in gold for the climber.
Cala Mancina, marine limestone. Never sleeping wall, overhanging wall pipe and "cauliflower". Crown of Aragon, Salinella with all its sectors. There is much to climb. And above all there's something for every taste, color, rock type, difficulty, you can venture even in the Deep Water Only Cala Firriato. If St. Vitus is "The World Leader", is climbing all over the world.
There remained a vision. Dolphins (two, not three, four, five, and in the end we lost count) perform acrobatic jumps in and out of the water a few meters from the shore, as if to invite us. It has a bathroom! though none of us have contemplated a bathing suit in the list of clothes to pack. On shore, the seagulls perched on a thousand "penitentes" lapped by the surf rock ... The view is unique.
Another vision which prepared the first to avoid the gaze "horny" and his mouth wide open behind the glass pastry is the variety - and goodness - the sweets on offer. We are recommending the "broken cannoli" (filled cannoli at the center of the wafer and long chips, for use as a spoon, artistically arranged radially in the cheese).
All this perhaps explains the rest. As the warmth of the local, disarming least enough to embarrass even the typical Milan, what changes when the bar owner greets him by name. To be clear: just arrived, we see a tourist own car to thank the crew of a gazelle of the policemen who drove to the hotel. Unthinkable ...
But, perhaps, is also explained by history. The Italians should know ... San Vito Lo Capo is the palatial center of gravity of our cultural roots: Romans in the North, South, and the Phoenicians, Greeks and Turks in the East And all this is perceived in San Vito. If you feel all right, although I do not know how. Perhaps the austere elegance of the Gothic cathedral of Erice, the ancient salt pans of Trapani activities of the peoples of the search of the authentic gold, white gold (nda salt). Or maybe the poignant architectural perfection of the headlands of Mount Hood, the cliffs of Cala Mancina, the walls of the Cathedral, which plunge into the sea.
Speaking of twists and turns. Even climbing has its share. Today the new opening of the Grotto of the Saints. 30 years ago, and Antonioli Maranton Sballo opened at Monte San Vito Monaco, while Merizzi, Miotti and companions climbed the first single pitch to Cliff Salinella, as well in the South says Alessandro Pillory Stone (1982).
The Remains of the journey is enlightening ... San Vito Lo Capo is another dream that gives us the Mare Nostrum, the Mediterranean, not remote destination for climbers migration in search of the mild climate and beauty.
San Vito Lo Capo not miss: The pesto Trapani The marzipan fruits Erice and its narrow streets, the Gothic cathedral The natural reserve of Zingaro Beautiful Susanna, seventh on the Never Sleeping Wall The cous cous
