Castiglione di Sicilia


Castiglione di Sicilia stands on a hill, on the northern slope of Mount Etna: small houses cling to the slope, set in the splendid landscape that embraces them. To visit the town, we will start from its heart, Piazza Lauria: from there, alleyways will lead us to the 17th-century Church of Sant'Antonio and, climbing up a steep street, we will arrive at the Church of San Pietro. Historical events have also left their traces: ascending a narrow flight of steps, we reach the ruins of an ancient Byzantine fortification that the locals call Castiduzzu (Castelluccio), but the real symbol of the village is 'U Cannizzu', a sandstone tower that was probably part of a more complex fortification, also worth looking at to lose oneself in the stories of the past.
