A cathedral of Normandy origin on top of the old town of Patti. Practically empty, completely without tourists. Beautiful views

Excellent restaurant. The manager is courteous, kind and professional. In case of some "mishap" he solves the problems and applies his courtesy and intelligence to the resolution of "small difficulties" ... in my case due to errors in the booking. The food is refined and of quality; perhaps the portions are "slightly" scarce. The cook is called Armida ... that is Miduccia. I had a great time and highly recommend it. At the end the "triple" is offered, that is three bottles with liqueurs

Beautiful located in the highest part of the historic center. Many works to admire.

The Cathedral Basilica of San Bartolomeo is the main place of worship for Patti. In the Basilica are recognizable elements of the Norman period. Very interesting are the marbles used inside. The Basilica rises inside the walls of the ancient Castle of Patti, which no longer exists today but some elements of the imposing structure can still be seen. An exhibition of the history of Patti with the Castle was arranged inside the Norman gallery.

Fisherman's Bastion

Fisherman's Bastion is a terrace in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style situated on the Buda bank of the Danube, on the Castle hill in Budapest, around Matthias Church. It was designed and built between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek. Construction of the bastion destabilised the foundations of the neighbouring 13th century Dominican Church which had to be pulled down. Between 1947–48, the son of Frigyes Schulek, János Schulek, conducted the other restoration project after its near destruction during World War II.

From the towers and the terrace a panoramic view exists of Danube, Margaret Island, Pest to the east and the Gellért Hill.

Its seven towers represent the seven Magyar tribes that settled in the Carpathian Basin in 896.

The Bastion takes its name from the guild of fishermen that was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages. It is a viewing terrace, with many stairs and walking paths.

A bronze statue of Stephen I of Hungary mounted on a horse, erected in 1906, can be seen between the Bastion and the Matthias Church. The pedestal was made by Alajos Stróbl, based on the plans of Frigyes Schulek, in Neo-Romanesque style, with episodes illustrating the King's life.
