Enna is a small city in Sicily, Italy. It is located in the province of the same name. Since the days when it was under Arab rule, Enna has been an agricultural capital in the region. Today, it is one of the biggest sources of grain in Italy. If you get a bowl of pasta at your hostel, for example, it was probably made using the grain farmed in Enna.

The city has roots in the cult of the Roman goddess of grain, Ceres. As you tour the city and surrounding country, you will learn about the many legends, including the tale of Persephone and Hades. While there are not many ancient ruins, you can ask any locals at your hostel, local restaurants, or tourist guides for a recounting of the mythology of the town and region.

Probably the best aspect of Enna is the scenery. Walk around the town and check out the views. You can also ask your hostel staff for directions to the Castello di Lombardia, a military structure from ancient fortified Sicily. You can check out the six remaining towers of the fortress, located on sheer cliffs at the edge of town. If you are here in the summer, get a ticket to one of the plays at the open-air theater.

Another ancient structure to visit is the Duomo in town. This was burned down in the 15th century and took 200 years to restore. Today, it is open to the public and features many architectural styles, including classical ruins and more. Check out the Alessi Museum nearby, too, for examples of the treasury of the cathedral and local jewelry.

While the ruins of the Temple of Demeter, also known as Ceres, are not very large, you can still visit what is left of the temple near the fortress. You can picnic here while looking out across the countryside below. Walk among the foundations and take in the view.
