Alcantara Gorge, Sicily

3.4
#15 of 83 in Nature in Sicily
Alcantara Gorge is a perfect place to swim, wade, and explore nature. You can view the gorge from above, walking among the lemon and orange trees, or you can descend to the bottom. If you plan on swimming, take a suit and sunscreen, as the sunlight gets quite strong in the area. There is also an elevator down to the water, so visitors who are physically challenged can enjoy it as well.

  • The Alcantara river have always been one of the most magical and evocative of Sicily, a visit not to be missed in this unusual angle of Trinacria. ;-)

  • We arrived on site at 16 in the afternoon! The cashier there was delivered with the greatest dishonesty a bracelet 5 euro fee per head with the possibility to use a lift! Visit duration 3 minutes! The elevator door on a beach where you can admire a stream of water trivial! There have been complaining loudly to the gentleman very disingenuous and unresponsive! Money down the drain

  • The Gorges are very interesting. The scenic spot to visit for excellence is the viewpoint of the gorges, don't miss the tumult of the volcano where the river meets the basaltic rocks. Other sights are the balcony of Venus, a little more tucked away inside the Park and the balcony of the waterfalls, where you can see the cave of the Gorge and the beach. The beach is where the walk ends, the bed of the river where we could admire the Gorges right in front of us. You can also enjoy activities such as rafting and many other.
