Sandstone reflects the bright sunlight. The city center is a Medina: Sambuca was founded by the Arabs and maintains its seven “Arab streets.” There is so much culture in a very small town. The palaces and churches are built in Sicilian Baroque style. This is true also for Palazzo Panettieri that is built on top of the ancient Arab wall that encloses the town. I enjoyed the small museum on the city’s ancient origins its wine making tradition that live on in the wine bar on the ground floor. I fell in love with the small theater where the inhabitants dedicate a few hours of their daily routine to cultural pursuits. If I lived in Sambuca, every evening I’d go for a walk on the Belvedere, the terrace of the Arab castle that has a breathtaking view of the valley.
