Photographer's Note

Caltabellotta, counting some 5,200 inhabitants, is located in the province of Agrigento. It has devolped amidst a mountainous area 950m above see level.
The city saw the Arab domination, who named it Kal’atal-ballut, standing for Oaks’ Rock. In 1302, it witnessed a fundamental event for Sicily’s history. There, in fact, Anjou and Aragonese signed the treaty of peace that put an end to the Sicilian Vespers war started in 1282.
Today it is one of the most unspoilt villages in Sicily.
