Troina

Area: Central Sicily

Troina is a splendid village located on the southern slopes of the Nebrodi Mountains, dominated by the majestic profile of the Etna volcano.
Its history is ancient: there are those who believe that the ancient Engyon arose in these places with a large temple dedicated to Dee Madri, who believe that the Greek city of Imakera rose here, important enough to mint its own currency. It is certain that this territory has been inhabited since the time of the Sicilians and Sicani, and that it was an important military garrison during the Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Arab domination. With the arrival of the Normans, the city of Troina reached its maximum splendor and was enriched with precious monuments.
Today its historic center retains the layout of the ancient Arab town, with narrow and winding streets, arches, stairways and underpasses and is dotted with numerous buildings of high historical value.
Its territory is rich in pastures and woods and is enriched by the presence of Lake Ancipa, the highest lake in Sicily.
