Directions to Riserva Naturale Bosco - Sicanian Mountains
This range of mountains border Ficuzza, Caltanissetta, Salemi and Agrigento in central-southern Sicily. They are not as well known as the Madonie or Nebrodi and receive far fewer visitors. Much of the range is hilly and made from clay or sandstone. There aren't many forests in the Sicanian Mountains and much of it is used for agriculture today. The highest peak, Rocca di Bussambra, is approximately 1,613 m in height and overlooks Ficuzza - a rather misty hamlet in the mountains. The woods of Ficuzza are the largest in western Sicily and ideal for trekking, cycling, horse riding and finding orchids.
Sant' Angelo Muxaro is another interesting place to visit in this region. The hilltop town is surrounded by beautiful agricultural countryside where you could eat ricotta with shepherds, drop into caves, explore ancient tombs and enjoy the traditional foods and festivals.
