Colorful wooden fishing boats in front of Castello Normanno on Piazza Castello, Aci Castello, Catania, Island of Sicily, Italy. The city of Aci Castello developed around the castle, which was built in 1076 (11th Century) by the Normans upon the foundations of a 7th-century Byzantine fortification. In 1169, Aci Castello started to expand after an eruption of Mount Etna made the towns in its vicinity uninhabitable. The castle later became the property of the bishops of Catania.
