The Best Linguaglossa Luxury Hotels

Linguaglossa
Set on the north-eastern slopes of the Volcano of Etna, Linguaglossa is a small town in the Province of Catania. Its origins are wrapped in mystery and its earliest historical record dates to around 1000 AD. What is sure is that in the 16th century this small town had no less than 18 churches, some of which still stand today. The most ancient is that of Sant’Egidio Abate, with its stunning 17th century frescoes, not forgetting San Francesco di Paola, of one century earlier, with paintings and sacred objects, together with modern bas-reliefs by local sculptor Salvatore Incorpora. Strolling along its two main streets  paved in lava stone blocks, you will discover deeply rooted local traditions and intense flavours, such as the local wine, the fresh pork sausage, known as “sasizza”, flavoured with wild fennel, almond pastries and many other specialities offering the chance of warm and simple get-togethers.
