I suspect the "proper" town is often bypassed because of the amazing villa in the valley below. It's worth a short detour to view the Cathedral. After you have feasted your eyes, walk across the square to the cafe, and order one of the home...More

Beautiful church on the "top of the hill". Another fine example of Sicilian Baroque. A bit disappointing inside, as I do not find it as adorned and in good shape as I had expected. A beautiful square lays before the church, with a great black...More

The cathedral is huge and for such a small place amazingly bulky. It is worth the climb up the hill from the main square for the view and for a look at this impressive building

The Piazza is beautifully paved and there a small amount of free parking. The interior is majestic with a painting of The Madonna over the altar. There is also a suspended 15th century painted cross.
