San Vito Lo Capo (Sicily)

San Vito Lo Capo is a town and comune in North-Western Sicily, Italy, administratively part of the province of Trapani.

The small town is located in a valley between mountains, and is home to a public beach that is destination of local vacationers. The town's primary industries are tourism and agriculture, particularly olive groves owned by small farmers. The town's eastern border is provided by a small range of mountains, the northernmost of which is peaked by a large cross visible from the public beach below. The mountain is home to numerous caves, most of which are inaccessible without professional climbing gear.

A cave, accessible by foot at the southern base of the mountain, was named "Caverna della Capra Guasto," or "Cave of the Dead Goat" by explorers Christian D'Angelo and William Spears. To the south is the Riserva naturale dello Zingaro. Other sights include the sanctuary-fortress, the chapel of Santa Crescenzia, the historical lighthouse, several tonnaras and the Torre dell'Usciere, a coastal watchtower. San Vito Lo Capo is a well-known rock climbing destination. Along the coast on the west side of San Vito lo Capo is a coastal cliff nearly 4 km long

What others are saying about Sicily

@alongianna asks:

I have a house in Sicily which I inherited from my parents and it is need of some work. When I contacted a contractor for a quotation I was given a price but told that there are government grants available which would pay 60/70% of the repairs.

@scottkeat asks:

Does anyone know how can I register to pay my property taxes electronically if I do not have any Italian identification documents? I have a Codice Fiscale, of course. But I am not a citizen, nor have a long-stay visa at this time.

Hi, we are looking at purchasing a 2nd home in Sicily and are currently doing as much research as possible.  I think we are aware of most of the potential problems and the agent we are in touch with has been honest and helpful and was born in Sicily.
