Sortino

Baroque monuments and typical flavors mingle in a visit to Sortino, a charming town in the Syracuse area.

Gently nestled on the low hills of the Iblei Mountains, overlooking a splendid view of Mount Etna.

Sortino is famous for the production of an exceptional honey made by the Sicilian bee. It is also the home of Pizzolo, a kind of local flavored pizza.

It is close to  Necropolis of Pantalica and the Anapo river, with thousands of cave dwellings that can be visited today,

Among the monuments and churches to visit, with a never heavy and elegant baroque, we mention the Mother Church of St. John the Apostle and Evangelist, the Church of St. Sophia Vergine e Martire, the Church of the Souls in Purgatory, the Church of St. Sebastian and the Church of the Nativity.
