Surrounded by rolling hills and olive groves is the historic town of Pietraperzia. Located in the heart of Sicily, in the Province of Enna, here you’ll come across ancient ruins, stroll through forests and woods, stumble across the celebrated orange and lemon groves, visit breathtaking lakes and eat the most delicious olives, grapes, almonds and pistachios. Pietraperzia boasts a rich production in all of these including cereals, which you can buy in the centre alongside local handicrafts – ceramics, cabinets and embroidery. In Sicilian dialect, Pietraperzia means ‘riddled stones,’ a perfect name for a town, that looks completely made of stone. A panoramic view of the town from the surrounding countryside is quite mesmerising. Whilst wandering around, be sure to look out for the Chiesa Madre (Mother Church), home to some interesting sculptures and the Town Hall, a former monastery. For an interesting day out, visit the town of Piazza Amerina, whos archaeological excavations have revealed a villa with stunning mosaics.
