Castelmola – Sicily

Switch Back Road

A mountain fortress built during Norman times in the 1300’s as a defense to protect from the invaders. The scenic bus ride up the mountain, twisting on the switchback roads was built to handle the steep climb. Incredible sites and vistas along the way.

Norman Walls

The Norman walls are the last remains of the fortress. We hiked to the very top of the ruins and couldn’t stop taking photos of the panoramic views below.

Mountain Village

Exploring the tiny mountain village with narrow streets and passage ways was worth the climb. I am sure, during tourist season, the area would be jammed with travelers.
