what-to-do-and-see-in-enna

Because of its central geographical limitation Island, Enna, capital of the province, is called the “Navel of Sicily” on one side; while, for the beautiful views, “Belvedere of Sicily” on the other. The city has an enviable panoramic position that allows already from the old town to appreciate its location; the Castello di Lombardia, symbol of the city, is an imposing fortress that stands on the highest point, making the city of Enna highest in Italy. Thanks to its long history of three thousand years old when it was almost impregnable stronghold of Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Arabs Aragon, Enna boasts a remarkable architectural heritage. Among the civil architecture we mention Varisano Palace which houses the Museo Archeologico Regionale with the exposure in its halls valuable archaeological artifacts related to the ancient society. Among the major expression of art there is the cathedral dedicated to Our Lady of the Visitation, built in 1307, by order of Eleanor of Anjou, wife of Frederick III of Aragon and fervent devotee of the Virgin Mary with magnificent frescoes, sculptures and stucco within. Of note in the rest of the province are the Villa del Casale, the remains of which are located on the outskirts of Piazza Armerina and considered the greatest example of mosaic art from the Roman era and among the most picturesque villages, Aidone, picturesque village perched on a hill, where narrow streets, stairways and small courtyards draw the urban fabric, with adjoining Morgantina, one of the most important archaeological excavations. Natural forests and lakes characterize this land and they are a great asset to those who want to spend a holiday in the countryside, between hiking, peaceful walks, horseback riding or mountain biking.
