Riserva Naturale Pantàlica
Pantàlica is a nature reserve set 450 m above sea level between two deep canyons carved by the rivers Calcinara and Anapo in the south-east of Sicily.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site boasts around 5000 prehistoric tombs formed out of limestone cliffs dotting the walls of the Anapo valley.
Pantàlica can be explored only by foot, so venture out following the various natural paths, which are very well kept and allow you to marvel at this extraordinary deep gorge with rock- cut tombs. You can take the upper trail offering some good rock climbing and fantastic views.There are over 1000 catacombs to be discovered, so try to find at least few if you can.
If you fancy only a relaxed walk or are coming with children follow the lower trail which will take you around small swimming natural pools/holes, where you can cool yourself down especially during summer months, when temperature rises high.
