Sicily by night!
The winter period, when it gets dark early in the day, is the perfect time to enjoy “Sicily by night”! We have selected several evening and night photos for you.

We conclude with a photo of the Ligny tower in Trapani. This fort was built in 1671 on the orders of the Captain General of the Kingdom of Sicily Claude Lamoral, prince of Ligne (Belgium), during the Spanish domination of Sicily. The tower was built to defend the city against the incursions of Barbary (North African) pirates. Until 1861 there were still cannons on the roof of the building. During World War II anti-aircraft artillery on the roof was used to shoot down enemy planes.
