Sicilian Impressions: Mountains

As a stranger to the mountains I have been challenged by Sicily’s predominate rocky landscape over the years.

It is fascinating to observe the Sicilian peaks, their changing faces which recall stark Irish hills or Scottish highlands.

In his now historical travelogue ‘Sea and Sardinia,’ D.H Lawrence complained of Sicily’s ‘peaky confinement’ preferring the wider spaces of Sardinia and its ‘running away moor-like’ hills.

There are both rocky ravines and wide ridges with endless possibilities of liberty in Sicily.
