The Surroundings

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

If a place is in the middle, it has everything surrounding it. This principle applies to the Tourist District “of the Mines”. Not far from Catania and Palermo, it borders in the north with Enna and the Erei Mountains (“Tourist District Dea di Morgantina”), and in the southwest, it borders with Sciacca and Mazara. Piazza Armerina in the east, the mountain chain of the Madonie in the north, they all represent an actual value added to the deep wealth of the District, and a chance to enrich the experience that the District offers. The complex network of the Castles; the Roman Villa of the Casale in Piazza Armerina, so loved by the public for its mosaics; Morgantina, the time machine to relive the daily life of the Greek and Roman cities; the ceramics and the Nativity sets of Caltagirone; the Arab remains and the Longobard inheritance; the citadels of Enna; the sea of Sciacca; the couscous of Mazara del Vallo; the wine of Menfi; the mountain landscapes of the Madonie, where, in winter, it is also possible to ski in Piano Battaglia, make this centre of Sicily an unmatchable wealth.
