The Islands of the Cyclops Of the coast of Aci Trezza are three tall, column-shaped islands. According to local legend, these great stones are the ones thrown at Odysseus in The Odyssey. The islands are referred to as the "isole dei ciclopi" (islands of the Cyclops, or Cyclopean Isles) by locals. This compliments the notion that the Cyclops once had a smithy below Mount Etna, which looms over the village to the northwest.

Aci Trezza is a town in Sicily, southern Italy, a frazione of the comune of Aci Castello, c. 10 km north of Catania, with a population of around 5,000 people. Located on the coast of the Ionian Sea, the village has a long history of maritime activity. Aci Trezza is a popular spot for Italian vacationers in the summer. The patron Saint of the town is St. John the Baptist. The Festa of San Giovanni is celebrated each year during the last week of June 24 in his honor.


Le Isole dei Ciclopi Il panorama di Aci Trezza è dominato dai faraglioni dei Ciclopi: otto pittoreschi scogli basaltici che, secondo la leggenda, furono lanciati da Polifemo ad Ulisse durante la sua fuga. I faraglioni compaiono sugli stemmi dei comuni di Aci Castello, Acireale, Aci Bonaccorsi, Aci Catena. Poco distante dalla costa (a circa 400 m di distanza), è presente l'Isola Lachea, identificata con l'omerica Isola delle Capre e che attualmente ospita la sede di una stazione di studi di biologia dell'Università degli Studi di Catania.
