Visit Enna - Sicily
The gigantic hill with quasi-flat top walled on all sides by steep cliffs makes it a natural, self-protected fortress. Sitting at an altitude of 931 m (3,055 ft) for centuries Enna dominated the “political, military and agricultural landscape” of the island. Founded in “pre-historic” times by Sicans the site was subsequently conquered by all powers ruling the island. Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans, Byzantines, Saracens, Normans, Aragones…. Now it is a living memory of time and jewel for tourists….
