Alcantara


The Alcantara River is another stunning natural wonder just a short drive from where we live. From the Calatabiano Castle we decided to follow the small winding road that meanders through the Alcantara Valley and is part of a regional park (Parco Fluviale Dell'Alcantara). The further inland you get, the more the river becomes a gorge, and at one point we were able to stop and peer over a little bridge and view the amazing basalt rock formations created through erosion by the flowing river. Even further inland you can enter the deepest part of the gorge, but we'll save that for another day.
