Pergusa is an Italian village of Sicily. It is a frazione of Enna, the administrative seat of the same-named province.

Geography[edit]

Pergusa lies in hills about 10 km south of Enna. Pergusa is reached by the Enna-Gela Road, which allow to reach Enna (about 5 km of way) and, from there, to entry the motorway Palermo-Catania.

The village gives its name to the Pergusa Lake, the only natural lake in Sicily,[citation needed] which is an important site for bird migration. The area is also surrounded by hills and forest known as Selva Pergusina.

Sport[edit]

The lake is surrounded by a well-known racing circuit, the Autodromo di Pergusa, which was created in the 1960s. The track has hosted various sporting events to this day.
