03 Sett. 2011 "The treasures of Enna" - Sicily - Italy
« on: September 05, 2011, 08:56:20 am »


Hello guys

 comeback from holiday to restart "Sicilia on the road."
 Despite the sweltering heat with a peak of 39/40  I have arranged a nice ride in the province of Enna and discover its treasures.
 with friends from Catania we were visiting the beautiful cemetery of Calascibetta Realmese dell'IX and sixth centuries BC which is the second "Necropolis Pantalicana" of Sicily, characterized by 288 burial caves are open in the white limestone cliff.
 Then we went to the village of Canalotto about 7 km from the village, an old Byzantine cave site of extraordinary beauty. Then again, Lake finere Villarosa and the icing on the cake the "Train-Museum" adjacent to the railway station of Villarosa. 1943/44 wagons (of which 3 used by the Germans during World War 2 for  travel to notorious Nazi concentration camps ) turned into a very interesting museum that not only trace the history of railways in Sicily is a cross-section of Sicilian culture and traditions.
 Pending the report .. online photos and a short video of Canalotto. Enjoy .. and if you go sign the guestbook
