Our exploration of Vendicari begins with a visit to the Roman Villa of Tellaro, which was built during the middle of the 4th century C.E. This Roman site, discovered below the remains of an 18th century farm, has a wide and well-preserved complex of mosaics, crafted by craftsmen from North Africa. In addition to the beautiful phytomorphic motifs of the mosaics, there is a superb hunting scene, as well as an episode of Homer’s Iliad.
We then head off to
 the so called Cittadella dei Maccari, to visit the ruins of a village and catacombs from the Bizantine period. Here we can admire the Trigona, a typical a Byzantine Cuba, which like all churches of the time, has a square plan with three apses, an upper dome and an opening to the east in such a way that, as tradition, the light of the full moon entered the building, starting the Holy Easter.

A few miles away, at the heart of the Vendicari Nature Reserve, near the Medieval tower built by Peter of Aragon in the first half of the 15th century, we take a stroll among the ruins of two fisheries: the former used by Greeks and Romans between the 4th century B.C. and the 2nd century C.E., the latter employed by tuna fishermen from the 17th century until recent times.
