Troina (Enna Province) is 64 km from Enna, alt. 1121 m, at the southernmost tip of the southern Nebrodi, area 166.95 sq km, pop. 10,574, post-code 94018, tel. 0935. Economy: agriculture (cereals, almonds, olives); stock-farming.

Here there was an ancient Sicel city, identified by some as Engyum or Herbita and by others as the polis Tyrakinai of Stephen the Byzantine, which prospered until the early Middle Ages.

Here Count Roger founded two Basilian monasteries and the Cathedral church attached to the first Norman bishopric in Sicily (1082-1096).

Troina has always remained part of the royal domain.

Of interest is the Norman Tower.
