We continued our mountain trek south and stopped at several mountain towns.


Our 2013 Holiday

In Sicily


The town of Adrano dates back to 400 BC and was founded by the Greeks and Bronte was named for one of the Cyclops, legend being that the Cyclops lived under Mount Etna where they crafted weapons for Zeus.

We paused briefly along the road southward to photograph this unidentified mountain town, perched on the very top of a hill.


St. Maria of the Rosary Church in the small mountain town of Bronte is on the below left and below right the Norman castle of Adrano, built c. 1080 AD on the remains of an earlier fortress built by Arabs and is typical of the Norman-Sicilian style.
