Sicily is filled with old rustic abandoned structures. Who lived here? What did they do? Where did they go?

Jojo goes rustic

This structure is from times B.C when people still lived in caves, then is passed to arabs, then to normans, then to baroque area and now it is just falling apart and been visited by thiefs. Up on the hill you have this structure now dated late 1800 and below you still find the caves. We have signed an agreement with the owner to develop the structure to a nice private hotel. This place is amazing an have so much history. You feel the place is dynamic when you visit it, it fills you with energy and makes you stand still for a while.

Denna struktur ?r fr?n tiderna F.K n?r folk fortfarande bodde i grottor, sedan togs ?ver av araber, sedan till normanderna, sedan till barock, och nu bara faller is?r och bes?kts av tjuvar. Uppe p? kullen har du denna struktur nu daterad sent 1800 och nedan kan du fortfarande hitta grottorna. Vi har tecknat ett avtal med ?garen f?r att utveckla strukturen f?r ett trevligt privat hotell. Denna plats ?r fantastisk, den har s? mycket historia. Du k?nner att platsen ?r dynamisk n?r du bes?ker den, fyller dig med energi och g?r att du st?r stilla en stund.
