Cavagrande del Cassibile

Spend a day at this secluded oasis, hidden in the hills near the little town of Avola. The Cavagrande del Cassibile is one of Sicily’s best kept secrets with its natural rock formations creating a system of fresh water ponds and impressive waterfalls. This gorge was originally shaped by ancient lava, which flows from Mount Etna. The canyon is about 10km long with dramatic waterfalls standing over 500 meters in some points.

View the spectacular scenery and panoramic sights from the viewpoint to see the delicate path of the Cassibile river in the green forestry. After photo opportunities, enjoy wandering down the walking trails to the base of the nature reserve. Visitors have the opportunity to bath in the collection of fresh water ponds and swim in the small rocky lined lakes.
