Cavagrande Nature Reserve

This proposal  includes an excursion in the Cavagrande Nature Reserve. This is the hyblean plateau, here the lifting of the plates and the action of the erosion created a natural miracle for tourists’ eyes. The Cassibile river flows inside the Cavagrande canyon, creating over time, gorges, small waterfalls, ponds and a still intact ecosystem. Nevertheless Cavagrande is not only unspoiled nature but also, like many canyon of that area, a prehistoric time capsule. In fact the early populations and the first protohistoric civilizations have settled here to build important communities.

There are three main itineraries, but the Carrubella one is the most complete and it is available all year round.

What included: Transfer service, professional naturalistic guide.

Cavagrande Nature Reserve

The Cavagrande  Nature Reserve was created/instituted to preserve the several richness of its territory, from a naturalistic and environmental point of view, but also under the archaeological and anthropological profile. In fact the whole area has always been inhabited throughout the millennia, and remarkable evidences survived, tombs and various artifacts. In the valley floor, the river Cassibile has come to create a unique system of small waterfalls and natural ponds (locxally called uruvi), great source of refreshment in the summer. The possible access to the reserve are Cugno di Mezzo, the Scala Cruci or the path called Carrubbella. The canyon gets about 507 meters deep and 1200 meters wide in the Avola Antica area.
