The old Norman fort, village and
amphitheatre which occupy the mountain
peak above the town of Cirella are
stupendous, eerie and mesmerizing.
Very few English-speaking tourists know
about the Cirella, but it is highly
recommended that visitors stop here, for
what this town beholds is mind-blowing.
There is no fee to enter the grounds which
the numerous historical monuments occupy
and because the ruins are not well-taken
care of, visitors are free to walk through
the grounds in their entirety.
It's highly recommended that if coming to
the ruins to dress in the proper attire
including sturdy foot-wear, for ambling
through the ruins requires it.
Cirella is divided into parts - the marina
and the upper town. In the marina,
several hotels and beach resorts await
visitors. It is however, the upper
part of the town, with the old Roman
village cascading the hill top, which is
the most interesting.
Located in the valley below, lies "La
Fattoria di Arieste" which is an old
estate farm, which welcomes visitors to
harvest the organic fruits and vegetables
they grow there, right along with the farm
