Piazza Armerina

After hoofing around the Villa Romana being totally mesmerised by its incredible mosaics we headed off into Piazza Armerina. We found a spot with a great view of the historical village and cattredale.

The city of Piazza (as it was called before 1862) developed during the domination  of the Normans in Sicily (11th century).

But the area had been inhabited since prehistoric times. Through Roman times The city flourished and has no less that 16 churches and a grand Cattredale

If you follow jesus you better hurry, he is just up the road!

We had a few drinks at Cafe Del Centro ( on two separate days) and some excellent pie as he explained produtti di locali facciamo de noi. Local produce made by us!  Its a wonderful town at night.
