I spy Vigata

Fans of the Montalbano tv series will recognise some of the views below from the wonderful panoramas shown at the beginning of each programme.

Whilst the Vigata of the Montalbano books was inspired by the author’s home town of Porto Empedocle, near Agrigento, the tv series was set in a number of places on the eastern side of Sicily, notably Scicli and Ragusa, plus the coast a bit further south.

    • There’ll be the final episode soon – though BBC aren’t giving a date. It seems that the final three books won’t get turned into tv series so I’ll be reading those and imaging the Sicilian scenery


      • Now that you’ve been there, you’ll probably find that really easy. I recently read a crime story based around Olhao, and just wonderful how the descriptions leapt off the page
