About the neighborhood
The town of Pollina is in the Park of the Madonie, the mountainous area located in the North Central part of Sicily. The mountains go right up to the sea and give the north coast of the island its characteristic high coast, populated by ancient hill towns with spectacular views. Pollina was built about 1000 years ago as a lookout over the sea protecting the town of Castelbuono with one of the best panoramas in Sicily, including a spectacular view of the Mediterranean sea, almost all the northern shore of Sicily and on the south side most of the Madonie mountains. On a clear day you can see Mount Etna and all the Eolian islands. The main industry in the area is tourism from vacation homes generally used by people from Palermo.

Driving along E90 it takes 1:15 Hours to get to center of Palermo, 1:45-2:00 to the airport at Punta Raisi 1:30 to Messina. Gong along the SS113 it takes about 20 min to get to Cefalù; the drive to Castelbuono also takes about 20 minutes.
Parking: The house is locate in the upper section the old medieval part of the city and is hard to access directly by car (you need a permit and a very small car). You can access the upper section of Pollina by a modern road that takes you to a drop off point called ' i Palazzi' less than 100 m from the house, parking is along the road that leads to the 'Palazzi', In regular summer days you can park within 200 m of the house during festivals or theater performance it can be longer but there is a shuttle
