#1: View to the North

(visited by Phil Boyle and Catherine Noiriel)

26-Apr-2011 -- This point lies just a few hundred metres off the road SP12, not far from the beautiful baroque city of Noto, and it is not necessary to cross any fences or barbed wire to get to it.

Unfortunately, on the day of our visit it was unseasonably rainy, so we didn't spend too long at the point. On a nice day it would be a pretty area in which to take a walk, however. All around are the colourful wild flowers that make Sicily such an appealing island.
