Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: Yes, yes, I know...too dark, too much noise. But I like this photo so I'm going to post it anyway. I took it with the camera wedged onto a balcony and the floodlights illuminating the castle were really difficult. Anyway, enough excuses, this is the Norman castle of Acicastello. Acicastello is a town in the Province of Catania on Sicily's east coast. It is next to the village of Acitrezza. You would recognise this place from some of the photos of Mauro61 and Francio64. The castle was built in 1071 by the Normans. There is an interesting museum in the castle which houses some interesting items and gives you a good history of the area.

ITALIANO: Si, si, lo so! E troppo scuro e troppo rumoroso. Ma mi piace quindi lo postero :) Ho usato il balconio invece di un tripiedi, e la luci forte vicino il castello erano difficult. Ma basta. Questo e il castello Normanno di Acicastello nella Provincia di Catania nella costiera ovest di Sicilia. Il castello e Normanno, e construito nel anno 1076. E accanto Acictrezza, e forse riconoscerete dalle foto di Maur61 e Francio64.
