(Description of the locality)
PATTI is an ancient Sicilian town, well-known because of its handicraft ceramics, placed on the western Tyrrhenian coast of Sicily, 65 km away from Messina. In its surroundings beautiful beaches of sand alternate to rocky cliffs in one of the most attractive stretch of shore all around Sicily. Worth visiting are: the Norman Cathedral, the ruins of the Roman Villa with its precious mosaics, the museum of ceramics; Tyndaris, very ancient Roman-Greek town founded in 396 B.C. whose important archaeological site still keeps the original Greek Theatre, the Basilica, the thermal baths and the ruins of the ancient walls; the Natural Reserve of Tindari with its peculiar dunes of sand enclosing three salty water little lakes and also with its interesting marine caves reachable either on foot or by boot.
