Porto Empodocle, Sicily

2008 Black Sea Melodies:
Didn't go on a trip but decided to spend a few hours in the Town. On the walk there we met people coming back who said "Nothing there worth seeing". I beg to differ! The Main Street is very pleasant, with a very attractive Town Hall, open air cafes, a statue of Nobel Prize winning writer Luigi Pirandello (Edna had heard of him, I hadn't), who was born here in 1867, and a rather drab looking Church. Go in the Church if you visit. Stunning! Well worth going to Porto Empodocle just to visit the Church. Had a pleasant cup of coffee outside a cafe (serenaded by an accordian player) and, all in all, a nice, quiet day in a nice Town.
