Piraino is a small village set on the cliff that goes from Capo D'Orlando to Capo Calavà.
Founded in the 9th century by the Arabs, it passed under the power of various feudal families, it still retains the appearance of an ancient village with its narrow alleys and houses huddled together.
Piraino is known as the town of the two towers due to the presence of a fortified citadel and another large tower that dominates the town.
Downstream of Piraino rises the hamlet of Gliaca di Piraino, a picturesque seaside village which extends along the Saracen coast, famous for its wonderful sea and splendid view of the Aeolian Islands.
