Another page showing a day out in Sicily, done in watercolours, coloured pencil and a water resistant pen that wasn't!
This time we went to Caccamo castle, which isn't too far away. The town is up a winding mountain road that climbs steadily up, suddenly you find the 12th century Norman castle perched high above the town.
Inside it has the creepy feel that castles should have, with lots of cobwebs and little doors to unknown places. The views are spectacular from the terraces, looking out over the valley and you can see what a great lookout position it had.
From here you could see the hill where I sat sketching a few days before and the man made lake below.
From the other side of the castle you look out over the town, I loved the old tiled roof tops! We spent the rest of the afternoon wandering about the town, there were lots of churches big and small, and houses built right into the rock of the mountain. You would certainly have to be fit if you lived here, to get about it's nearly all steps!
