A medieval village perched on a green limestone hill dominated by the Castello della Fava, from which you can admire the splendid panorama of the sea and the surrounding plain. Posada is one of the most beautiful places on the eastern coast and excels for its history, culture and landscapes, to the point that it belongs to the club of the most beautiful villages in Italy and it has also been awarded the Orange Flag. It was built on the ashes of a Carthaginian colony, known as Feronia: in fact, it is one of the most ancient villages on the Island (5th-4th century BC). In vogue, during the Giudicati period, it ended with the advent of the Saracen pirates, who caught sight of it from the sea, like a treasure. The country today still has a Medieval charm and looks like a stone maze made up of intricate alleys, steep flights of steps, arches and unexpected little squares, as if the architecture itself were telling the tale of escapes and reprisals.
