Duomo on the heights


Here’s the view from our B&B bedroom, across the valley at Piazza Armerina, of course with the cathedral dominating both the old town just below it and the skyline.

We got here via D’s Madonie mountain road, while the sun was shining and the views long. We crested our highest pass at around a mile high, and saw alpine-ish vegetation, although I thought most of it was pasture land—transhumance?—snow sticks 2m tall lined the road, and we encountered almost no traffic. Stunning!
