11km north. The road passes below the tall rugged slopes of Monte Pellegrino. This area, now an elegant holiday resort, was “discovered” at the beginning of the century by well-to-do Palermitans who decided that it provided the ideal conditions for a weekend away or for a short seaside holiday. As a result, large numbers of elegant villas sprang up (many of which still stand) along the sea front, the length of Viale Principe Scalea (Villa Magherita at no 36), Via Margherita di Savoia (especially at the beginning) or in the steets behind, like no 7 Via Cà da Mosto (Villino Lentini).
The sea front promenade is graced with a picturesque bathing establishment dating from the beginning of this century, which continues to function as such (although part of it has been converted into a restaurant and accommodates a private club).
