Borgo Tinto

Sometime ago we visited a place called Borgo Tinto, The Colored Fort. This fort was not colored with normal color, it was a place for a battle and the area was colored with blood. Om my lap on the last photo you see ceramics findings from the african era (black) and greek era (red).


Ett tag sedan bes?kte vi en plats som heter Borgo Tinto, Det F?rgade Fortet. Detta fort var inte f?rgat med vanlig f?rg, det var en plats f?r en kamp och omr?det blev f?rgat med blod. P? mitt kn? p? den sista bilden du ser keramik fynd fr?n afrikanska eran (svart) och grekiska eran (r?d).

Caratabia in Mineo

We visited the Caratabia Caves just by Mineo, approximately 40 minutes from Catania by car. This place is also called Castello delle Pietre = Stone Castle. These two caves are from the hellenistic and greek era where you can find original inscriptions on the cave walls dated about 500 B.C. There are two caves, one for living and animals, and in the second cave they made wine and ricotta, you can see the hole in the ground on the 6th photo where they produced these foods. If you want to visit these, you need you need to contact a guide by the municipality to open up the entrance.


Vi bes?kte Caratabia Grottorna vid Mineo, cirka 40 minuter fr?n Catania med bil. Denna plats kallas ocks? Castello delle Pietre = Sten Slottet.

Piano Casazze

We visited a location called Piano Casazze in Sicily. On this place was located a very important greek city built 400-300 B.C. It was a agricultural business city where also their money called Galaria had a grape symbol. Money had different symbols depending of the area and what was mainly produced in that area. People lived in caves and structures built of stone. Under the hill you can find an arabian synagogue. The historical guide said the origins are from 2500-1500 B.C. I have to ask again…

We are heading to the white hill top on the left.


Vi bes?kte en plats som heter Piano Casazze p? Sicilien. P? denna plats l?g en mycket viktig grekisk stad byggd 400-300 f.Kr. Det var en jordbruksstad d?r ocks? deras pengar som kallas Galaria hade en druva som symbol. Pengarna hade olika symboler beroende av omr?det och vad som huvudsakligen produceras i det omr?det. Folk bodde i grottor och strukturer byggda av sten. Under kullen kan du hitta en arabisk synagoga. Historiska guiden sade att ursprunget ?r fr?n 2500-1500 f.Kr. Jag m?ste fr?ga igen

Vi ?r p?v?g mot den vita toppen p? v?nster sida.

Visiting Lania and the Cave Sant’Agrippina

We go out for a cultural hikes almost every sunday and this time we visited Lania river and the cave Saint Agrippina where they still hold religious feasts called “Verginelle”. It is a difficult territory to pass, so I recommend not to go here without a guide. We are climbing up to the cave you see after the violet flower photo..


Vi g?r ut f?r kulturella vandringar n?stan varje s?ndag och den h?r g?ngen bes?kte vi Lania floden och grottan Saint Agrippina d?r de fortfarande har religi?sa h?gtider som kallas Verginelle”. Det ?r ett sv?rt omr?de att passera, s? jag rekommenderar inte att g? h?r utan en guide. Vi kl?ttrar upp till grottan ser du efter den violetta blomfotot.
