Al Cannistra's insight:

You can draw your own conclusion on this article….

 

IMO, real estate is LOCAL and best served by a local REALTOR site offering the same shared information as the “national” sites (all populated by the local MLS – multiple listing service).  

 

Bring it HOME -  Anyone looking in San Antonio and the surrounding areas, check out www.SanAntonio.Homes – we skip the commercials, we are local!  (If you need a Buhl, ID home – please do not use our site, we have no Buhl listings on our site)

Cannistra '
Proceeding from Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto and then along
the viale delle Rimembranze, the Provinciale 80, after passing the city cemetery, after a little more than 2 km you reach CANNISTRA '.
The hamlet about 3 kilometers away from the municipality of Bacelllona PG rises 195 meters above sea level and is home to around 280 inhabitants. Once in front of the church of San Giobbe, the visitor,
turning his gaze to the left, will lose himself in a horizon that reaches the sea, seeing the Aeolian archipelago.
A rich vegetation characterizes the surrounding landscape where vineyards and olive groves, carob and fir trees stand out on the wide hills, making Cannistra 'a peaceful oasis.
