Enna is located on an isolated mountain almost 1000 meters above sea level.
It is rightly known as the "viewpoint of Sicily" because from here you can have a wide and spectacular view over the island.
It is a purely medieval physiognomy town, in fact, the very interesting Castle di Lombardia, the marvelous Torre di Federico and the Duomo were built douring this period.
There are also Arab break-ins with narrow alleys that descend from the center to the lower districts.
In ancient times it was called Henna by the Romans; the Arabs called it Qaṣr Yānī - the Castle of Enna - a name that with the arrival of the Normans was Sicilianised in Castrogiovanni; from 1927 it came back to being Enna following the fascist custom of resuming the classic names.
Beyond history, near the city, a modern university and the Pergusa autodrome, home to major international sporting events.
Today we discover...
The ancient town of the Venus
