Alcamo is located in the center of the Gulf of Castellammare, at 258 meters above sea level. and is located on the slopes of Monte Bonifato, a limestone complex that reaches 825 meters above sea level, and which, above 500 meters, hosts the Monte Bonifato Nature Reserve. The climate is temperate and the central position with respect to the Gulf of Castellammare offers view characterized by magnificent horizons, which are even easier to see from Monte Bonifato. The surrounding countryside offers a splendid landscape of rolling hills full of vineyards and in Alcamo marina it is still possible to admire the sand dunes. The coexistence of city, mountain, countryside, beach and sea makes the Alcamo area full of naturalistic alternatives. Outside the inhabited center, but in any case within the municipal area, heading towards Palermo you will find the Castle of Calatubo, a fortress built in the early Middle Ages.
