Sicily, the most beautiful island

Sicily is a fertile island located at peak of the boot of Italy. Drawings in caves in the mountain Monte Pellegrino at Palermo confirm human settlements since the Palæolithic age. Since then different people and cultures have had the dominion: the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Saracens and people from the Northern part of Europe where every culture has left a heritage for the future inhabitants of Sicily. It is the heritage such as impressive buildings, monuments and churches but also new crops and technology. Because of the strategic position of Sicily in the Medeterranian sea there has since the first settlements been many battles and wars. The last one in World War 2.
As told before the soil is very fertile and there is a produce of many sorts: vegetables, olives, wine, fruit (especially lemons, oranges and mandarins), lotus and grapes. The sicilians love food - good food and there a lot of exeptionel good restaurants and pizzarias.
In Sicily there are many beautiful beaches for those who care especially for at holiday at the sea. For the hiking people the mountainious regions of Madonie and Nebrodi must be ideal for a holiday. For those who have an interest for culture Palermo, Siracusa and The valley of the Temples near Agrigento each have their fantastic monuments and buildings - and ruins. And the churches all over Sicily have their own class!
