It is also considered the cultural and economic hub between the Mediterranean and Europe. Sicily has a far reaching and turbulent history. Due to its central location in the Mediterranean, Sicily has been highly sought after. Greeks, Romans, the Vandals, Arabs, and the Normans, they all ruled over the island and left their mark. The natives were called Sicani and Siculi and hiked over the southern tip of Italy to enter Sicily. They were displaced by the Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Greeks. The ancient Greeks 735 BC founded the first settlement, Naxos there. Other important Greek centers were Akragus, today's Agrigento and Gela. In the Valley of the Temples near Agrigento numerous Greek buildings have survived from antiquity. Did you know that the island of Sicily viewed from the still active volcano Etna looks like a star with three peaks lying upside down? Or that Tindari (formerly Ttyndaris) was one of the last Greek-Sicilian colonies, and that, the Black Madonna is kept there in a Sanctuary? Not to be forgotten are the little islands around the island of Sicily: Aeolian and Egadi, Ustica, Pantelleria, Linosa and Lampedusa, and each island has its own character.
