The Nebrodi (Italian: Monti Nebrodi, Italian pronunciation: [ˈnɛːbrodi], Sicilian: Munti Nèbbrudi) a mountain range that runs along the north east of Sicily. Together with the Madonie and the Peloritani, they form the Sicilian Apennines.
The mountains run from the Peloritani on the eastern part of the island to the foothill of the Madonie mountains to the west, facing the Tyrrhenian Sea on the north. Mount Etna, from which it is separated by the rivers Alcantara and Simeto, forms the range's southern border. The highest peak is the Monte Soro (1,817 m). The range mostly made up of sandstone and clay rocks, but include also limestone landscapes, like the Rocche del Crasto. Towns that are situated in the mountains include Troina, Nicosia, Mistretta and a number of other towns in the province of Messina.
