If your are a fond of the Inspector Montalbano, this is certainly the tour for you!
The most affectionate will have noticed that the places described in the books and those seen in the series do not always coincide.
In fact, the area of Agrigento described in the novels, from a scenographic point of view, was consider to be “poor” and, for this reason, the choice of the set fell on the enchanting landscapes of the province of Ragusa. This is where the baroque architecture, the dense vegetation of olive and carob trees and the typical dry stone walls coexist.
In general, the fiction of Montalbano gravitates around Ragusa Ibla, Donnafugata, Puntasecca and Scicli.
In the wonderful Ragusa Ibla, the places filmed in the fiction are the fascinating ibleo garden and the Corso 25 Aprile – where the restaurant preferred by the commissioner, the Vigata police station (in Piazza Pola) and the Vigata square (Piazza Duomo) are located. There you will be fascinated by the wonderful Cathedral of San Giorgio.
In a wide field full of carobs and olive trees, you will see the Donnafugata Castle: from its terrace you will appreciate a breathtaking view and, when you turn around the park, the different scenes of fiction will resurface in your mind.
And then, do you know where the house of Montalbano is? It is in the small fishing village of Punta Secca. Marinella, is in fact nothing but the beautiful village overlooking the Mediterranean, a district of Santa Croce Camerina. In that area, you can admire the characteristic lighthouse of Bourbon origin, 37 meters high.
The last stop of the Montalbano tour is in Scicli: here you can admire the Town Hall building (which gave the setting of the Questore di Montelusa’s room) and Palazzo Iacono (where the scenes outside the Montelusa Police Headquarters are filmed).
The Montalbano tour is a must if you want to relive the events of the most beloved commissioner in Italy and beyond! You will be enchanted by the nature, art, culture, cinematography, good food and wonderful sea views.
