  • The small town of Sperlinga, located between the Nebrodi and Madonie mountains, is only a few kilometres from Nicosia and just 47 kilometres from Enna. It is a lovely village, partly dug into the rock above it and on whose Summit stands the Castle. This fortress, built in the rock that forms an integral part of the structure. Walked in the front door, you will cross several circles carved into the rock. And a stairway, also carved in stone, leads to the upper terrace from where you can enjoy a wonderful view. The Castle has become historically famous when a French garrison there you stayed inside and remained there for over a year. In fact, here was completed i Vespri siciliani. I must point out that, at the time, due to a collapse, the castle is not open to the public. You can visit the country and enjoy the beauty of the Castle from the outside. While waiting for the bureaucratic machine decides to return to the world this marvel of stone.

  • I loved this castle in stone because it is very particular. Troglodytes have really had a fabulous idea to build it. Shame you can't enter due to the collapse, just reopen going back.

  • The Sperlinga Castle is in my opinion an unicum in the world thanks to its structure. It develops within a huge Rocky Ridge and only in the top tier is defined externally in the classic way imaginable with towers and battlements. Unfortunately for nearly two years is inaccessible due to a landslide that has rendered unusable much; Today, however, during my visit to the country, a lady told me that the funds for restoration should arrive shortly. And it's about time!! Follow the same style of the Castle caves-Museum, which is inhabited dwellings carved into the rock below the Castle and up to 60 years. Very impressive! Board shoes very comfortable to walk the trails often steep.
