Torre del Salto d’Angio
The Torre del Salto d’Angio, also called A Turri – The Tower, is located approximately 12 kilometres from Aragona, in the province of Agrigento.
Of rectangular shape, the structure is surrounded by the main building of an ancient farmhouse of the 17th century, and is divided in three sections : the first and the third floors have old mullioned windows with semi-circular arches, whereas the second floor has pointed arch windows.
This imposing construction stands in the middle of three courtyards, where once was the direct environment of the agricultural exploitation.
The Torre del Salto d’Angio is located where three lands meet : Diesi, Cantarella and Muxarello and overlooks the territory of the latter two. During the historical period between the 13th century and 14th century, these two properties were consolidated into a single property : Muxaro.
The Tower over the centuries was renovated a number of times, and today the Tower is a structure with an incomparable charm, standing alone and isolated in a wonderful landscape
