Photographer's Note

Near Realmontethe there is the Scala dei Turchi (The Turkish Staircase ).
The Staircase is a beautiful white marl cliff, a sedimentary rock formed by limestone and clay.
Wind and rain have modelled it into a staircase.
The view is unique, and the white of the rocks looks brighter because the sun light insinuates itself between the light blue of the sky and the deep blue of the water: it's a paradise.

The water is incredibly clear and during the summer there is a big crowd of people sunbathing.
According to an old legend, the Saracen corsairs having anchored their boats behind the staircase, climbed the cliff reaching the top.
Once there they robbed the local people.
