Striking monument by the cruise terminal. A reminder of past times. A drive by really as it's in the middle of a roundabout.

Situated on the road from the airport to Palermo, this monument pays tribute to those brave men who fought and died to try eradicate this pestilence from Sicily. It's also a mark of shame on those who allowed it to happen

A monument to commenerate a murdered judge along the highway to Agrigento. Nothing special and not worth a special visit
