Have you ever visited Troina, the jewel in the heart of Sicily?

Have you ever visited Troina? The main square of Troina is Piazza Conte Ruggero, located in the highest part of the historic center, from where it is possible to observe Mount Etna, the coast of the Ionian Sea and Mount San Pantheon. On the opposite side the Nebrodi woods and the Sartori lake.

In the square there are three churches (the Cathedral, the Church of the Santissimo Rosario and the Oratorio dei Bianchi) and the town hall. The historic center of Troina develops along via Conte Ruggero, whose path starts from the square of the same name and ends in the south in the Santa Lucia district, and there are the Capitania Tower, the Church and convent of San Francesco. Via Garibaldi is an important artery, a steep uphill road that connects the lower part of Troina with the upper part, that is the Borgo.
