Wedding Venue Information

The Castello San Marco stands proud in the picturesque village of Calatabiano in Sicily and is a popular wedding venue for people looking for a wedding destination that offers romance and history. Calatabiano is nestled between the Alcantara Park River and the Fiumefreddo Reserve River and stretches up from the sea. Surrounded by lush green countryside, olive groves, grape vines and citrus groves, Calatabiano also boasts a castle built -by Arabs in 900BC that proudly rises from the hill overlooking the town. A small distance from the village, you can visit the Alcantara Gorges, locally known as Larderia Gorges, a stunning natural canyon created by the many earthquakes through the years, leaving small waterfalls and fascinating rocky crags in their wake. For the beach babies amongst us, you have the fabulous 3-kilometre-long Calatabiano beach, littered with beach bars, beach loungers and golden sand with a natural backdrop of eucalyptus trees and acacias. This medieval town is also host to the beautiful Mother Church SS Annunziata, also known as the Church of San Filippo, famous for its impressive works of art. All in all, this is a great location for a wedding in Sicily.
