I have blogged about Castelbuono before, but not recently, so I am doing it again!
We took an English friend there last summer, and she took all these lovely photos. Thank you Adrienne!
Castelbuono has a medieval castle with a very long ramp at the entrance and several arches to negotiate before you get there:
The town is full of enticing side streets with geraniums, cats and old ladies to be spotted among the laundry, all with a stunning backdrop:
We visited some of Castelbuono’s fun little shops, where I was tempted to buy yet another tea set for my collection.
We also found a food shop selling potato crisp flavoured chocolate (it was nice) and Padre Pio beeswax candles (we didn’t taste them).
We tasted lots of free samples of sausage in a sausage shop, all of which were hand made by the owner’s Mum.
We spotted a marching band having a little rest and a coffee before setting off to play their music:
A saint in the local church signalled that everything was OK, so we went on…
To see some more shops
Where we went a little wild buying traditional ceramics….
…and then went home to eat up our sausages!!!
