|Bosco di Ficuzza|
For the past two weeks I have been out and about visiting some of the most beautiful parts of Sicily. An old friend came to stay with me and we decided to be intrepid travellers/tourists, packing picnics and setting off in my little car. Some places I already had visited and some were new to me, all were exceptionally beautiful.
I wanted to make a record of all the places we went to, and here is the first one using my usual bits of treasure that I pick up, photos and sketches.
Ficuzza is a nature reserve and small village in the district of Corleone, an ancient oak forest stretches for miles and miles. The first place you come to is the village of Ficuzza and it's Baroque hunting lodge, we then followed a footpath up into the nature reserve, you can just see the footpath we followed in the bottom left of the photo. We walked for several hours, so I think we deserved the coffee and cakes we had sitting in front of the hunting lodge when we got back.
