Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web
Considered by locals to be the Grand Canyon of Sicily, Cavagrande del Cassibile is a nature reserve surrounding a large canyon. Perfect for nature-lovers, hikers, or those who enjoy extreme sports, this reserve offers something for everyone. Admire the scenery from the road, or venture onto one of the many paths to get closer to the wildlife, waterfalls, and flora of the park. During the summer, head down to the many freshwater pools that line the bottom of the canyon and cool down in the crisp water. If it's your first visit, we suggest the Scala Cruci pathway, an easier option that doesn't sacrifice great views.

  • A very beautiful canyon with fantastic views. It goes serpentine mountain road with magnificent viewing platforms. Down to the Lakes could not reach us due to weather conditions (rain), but local residents said that the time of the descent takes 40-50 minutes and when you yourself should definitely have comfortable shoes.
