Our Events & Activities Group is organising another day trip to Sicily. Our destination this time will be Cava d’Ispica, a picturesque river valley between Ispica and Modica.
The long canyon from the Bronze Age is a wonder in the joy of light with over 13 kilometers of nature and history. It’s long history has left behind, among other sites, the prehistoric tombs of the Sicani, underground oratories, beehive tombs, Byzantine crypts and sanctuaries with traces of ancient frescoes… and a castle.
Our walk will be approximately 14km long and is medium-to-difficult in some parts, mostly off-road, and includes some slippery stretches especially if wet. Suitable footwear is recommended.
