Cavagrande del Cassibile, Avola

(4.5/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • Spectacular spot fatigue and fatigue to descend and ascend from the path leading to the Lakes, is rewarded by the incredible beauty of the place. Try it for yourself! Only negative trash abandoned.

  • We took a trip with my girlfriend has two other couples, they say, paradise of nature, surrounded by trees and vegetation of ponds. It is a hike rather tiring because you go down into the heart of the mountain, but arrived there it is worth it. Good luck for the return. A great ascent is waiting for you!
