I Megaliti dell’Argimusco in pictures

High in the hills near Montalbano Elicona, north of Etna, there is a plateau, called the Argimusco. In the middle of this plateau stand five megalithic rocks. Each has a name, according to its shape: the eagle; the lion; the big cliff; the praying woman; the old mother. The peace up there is total. No car horns, no voices, no machinery. Just the clang of goat bells drifting through the enveloping cloud, and the occasional muffled thud of wild horses’ hooves on bracken-covered earth.

I could have stayed there forever.

    Oh wow, Kate, how absolutely GORGEOUS! It’s like something out of an Old World fairytale. :-)

    Bellissime foto! Thanks!

  4. You’re so right, Krista! Absolutely amazing place. What with the clouds and the peace and the lack of other human life about, it was just as if we’d been transported to our own little world. *wistful sigh* :)

  5. Thanks Lola – so glad you enjoyed it. And you’ll have to believe me when I say that it was even more fabulous ‘in the flesh’. Beautiful, powerful, mystical: just wonderful …

  6. Grazie, Ann! E prego! Sono contentissima di aver condiviso anche un piccolo pezzo di un posto così bello …
