The bar Turrisi is a place of worship located in Castelmola. Founded in 1947 at the hands of the rider Salvatore Turrisi, was born as an inn for foreigners where they were sipping tasty almond wine made ​​with white grapes and infusion of bitter almonds. Structure after the war that has turned into a hotel, here you can enjoy over the almond wine, pizzas, pasta dishes ices and ice cream. Also extends over four elevations with views of the Duomo of Castelmola Gulf of Giardini Naxos and Mount Etna. He became famous for his sculptures representing the phallic worship and the very free social custom that made Taormina a cultural reference for many artists and not. Many magazines show us how one of the attractions of Sicily, but we like to think that convey a thought of being Sicilian and freedom of expression, in a structure difficult to manage since the 4 levels. Who does not know how to interpret these places far from wanting to be rude, and does not know or does not have the respect of all that, the place to find elsewhere.

Great Lunch on the balcony. Good atmosphere. Relaxed, comfortable and again no rush. Could have spent all day here. Go for a walk around but save time for a lunch here.

A really fun bar with an interesting theme. Try to not find out about why it's famous and just go! Would recommend the almond wine which was a specialty - we even bought a bottle to take home.

Visited this bar but I must say it was nothing to shout about . I found it quite expensive, couple of 66cl beers and two small waters 22 euros. Getting there isn't easy and parking even more difficult. The panoramic view of Mount Etna is breathtaking, made the trip worthwhile I can finally tick this place off my bucket list.
