A short valley separates Enna from the town of Calascibetta, perched on a rocky peak.
Our private day tour in the land that surrounds it is a real immersion in nature and archaeology. Whoever ventures here is faced with the surprising discovery of the Realmese necropolis, an entire white rocky hillside scattered with 288 rock-cut tombs dating back from 11th to 6th century BC. A short distance away, the rupestrian village of the Canalotto Valley provides evidence of the historic local aptitude for troglodytism with rock-cut tombs, dwellings in caves and hypogean structures for viticulture and other artisanal works.
Our cultural tour ends with the visit to Calascibetta, where you still can go through the narrow and curvy alleys of the Arab-Norman Kalt el Scibet, recognising the traces of a more ancient past in the survival of ancient dwellings in caves in Via delle Carceri. On the top of the hill, the Holy Mother Church, elevated to Royal Palatine Chapel by Peter II of Aragon, arises on the ruins of the ancient Castle of Marco, a fortress erected by Roger I during the siege of Enna. From here, all around us, vast landscapes form a connection to the rest of the island.
