Winter
Print Friendly

Travelling through the District in winter is an unusual way to say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new one. Sacred festivals and flavors rule: for example in Caltagirone, it is possible to taste Cuddureddi, prepared especially at Christmas time. Or in Centuripe, where the “Cucciddati” triumph during the famous local event “Centuripe nel Presepe”, along with the delicious “Bersagliere”, until the Festival of San Giuseppe on March 19th. Or in Enna, where the famous Cuccìa is intrinsically linked to December 13th, the celebration of Santa Lucia. Enna allows travelers to taste the Frascatula, a dense corn porridge, ideal for consumption on cold winter evenings; or Buccellati (Picciddata), and Pignoccata (Pignolata) widespread throughout Carnival. Also during the long winter evenings the Castello di Lombardia, with its mysterious fog, is almost equally as fascinating as its counterpart Pergusa Lake, with its winter light allows for exciting bird watching. It can be cold in these parts, but the warmth of the local residents and winter activities, as well as evenings with great food, will make this season one of the most comforting.
