My Trip to Sicily 2007
Agrigento Page Two!
|Diana & I were thrilled to see our names on this store, a profumeria (perfume store.) We talked with him, but he is not related to our Marchese Familia.Owner is on his cell phone (like here.)|
|Colorful wildflowers blooming between the Temples of Agrigento.|
|Here is a real cute passage way in the medieval town of Agrigento. I guess we would call it a stairway alley.It was so beautiful seeing swallows flying all during the day.In a hundred year old book I have,you can see the swallows there also.|
|The inside of one of the many beautiful churches Agrigento.|
|Here is a closer view of the same alter. We ran out of time to visit all of the chiesi.|
|This was a very different Christian church. It was built on top of the remains of a Greek Temple. The floor of the church was all thick glass. It made you step very carefully.This is very common in all of Italy.|
|The best part !! Pesce Spada ! Swordfish.What a FISH and a great picture. They were cutting this fresh pesce and we were there ! It is Sicily's favorite fish !!|
|Here the handsome and gentile butchers are sawing this fish like a wooden log. We asked who in town was serving their swordfish, and we ate dinner there.Buon Appetito !!!|
|Well, here we are eating the pico colazione (small breakfast) which is typical in all Italy. This is at the Agrigento B&B.|
The 2nd best part !!! A great GELATO bar. Notice the artistic way they display the gelato !! All sorts of flavors.
Note: Music by Quartet Gelato!!
|Yes, that is me really enjoying the treat !! That is just a single dip, un euro !! This and Cannoli are a reason to COME TO SICIY.|
