    The city of Enna (known as CastroGiovanni until the 1920s) is located high on a mountaintop almost in the exact center of Sicily, affording a panoramic view overlooking the scenic valleys of Sicily's rugged interior. Enna's position makes it a natural strategic defensive position; any army that sought to control Sicily's interior would have to hold Enna.Enna is not only Sicily's highest major city, but at an elevation of 931 meters, it is the highest provincial capital in Italy (higher than Potenza and Aosta). Ain exactly when Enna was founded, most agree that a major settlement existed there as early as 1200 BC. Enna is also the capital of the only one of Sicily's nine provinces that has no coastline.sunrise city history top of hill old sunrise Calaccibetta Dawn clouds streaks red
