Je heißer die Temperaturen, desto mehr sollte der Abstieg in die Cava Grande überlegt sein, da am Ende der einzige Rückweg wieder steil bergauf führt. Doch es lohnt sich: neben einer spektakulären Aussicht lockt unten kristallklares Wasser zum Baden und abkühlen. Unbedingt im Rucksack mit dabei haben: Ausreichend zu Trinken, Sonnenschutz und Kopfbedeckung, gutes Schuhwerk, Badesachen. Unten gibt es keine Einkaufmöglichkeiten; erst wieder die kalte Cola nach dem Aufstieg zurück am Parkplatz.

If you like nature, panoramic views and trekking you should have a trip to Cavagrande del Cassibile during your holiday in Sicily. It's a huge nature reserve which surrounds the canyon formed by the little Cassibile river. The Canyon is about 10 Km long and has steep stone walls, over 300 m high in some points. Cavagrande is located few kilometers from the little town of Avola, southern of Syracuse. The main access point to the canyon is the little road which passes near Avolaantica, a town destroyed by a terrible earthquake in the year 1693. It's not necessary to do a tiring excursion to enjoy beautiful panoramic views over the province of Syracuse till the sea or look down in the canyon to admire the little lakes and the curves of the little Cassibile river. Spring is a great season to visit the nature reserve because the temperatures are mild and the landscape is fullfilled with flowers. During the summer months it's also possible to have a bath in the fresh little lakes which are located at the base of the canyon. There are also archeological remains like the impressive "GrottadeiBriganti", or the prehistoric Cassibile necropolis, at the end of the canyon. There are a lot of pathways with different difficulty grades which permit the visit to Cavagrande. If you are visiting Cava Grande the first time, we suggest the "Scalacruci" pathway which starts at the Belvedere and arrives at the little lakes.

The area of the canyons and lakes of the Cassibile were declared a Protected Area. The river has created a series of canyons and near Avola Antica several waterfalls and small lakes.
