The hasty reader of the Leopard, looking for clues about the location of Donnafugata and taking a look at the map, thinks he found it near Ragusa. Nothing more wrong! He has to look somewhere else! Donnafugata is a fictional town but includes existing and easily recognizable places not far from Agrigento. Fortunately comes to our aid the information contained in a letter that Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa wrote to his friend Baron Enrico di Merlo Tagliavia. “The palace at Donnafugata is one and the same as the one at Santa Margherita, while for the town as a whole, the reference is to Palma Montechiaro”.
Join our local expert on a fascinating tour of “Donnafugata” in the places described by Tomasi di Lampedusa. At the end of the tour, you’ll get a better understanding of the book and an insight into the essence of Sicily.
The tour can be done in a full day (with an optional lunch in a gourmet restaurant) or in a half-day focusing in one town (Palma di Montechiaro or Santa Margherita Belice).
