Etna lava forms Gole dell'Alcantara

The Gole dell’ Alcantara has its origine many thousands of years ago when a lava flow from Mount Etna blocked the river bed. Because of the ice cold water the lava was cooled much more quickly than under normal circumstances. This causes crystallization in the form of octagonal columns. During the next millennia the Alcantara eroded a channel through these colums. This gave the Gole dell' Alcantara its present impressive sight.

The Gole dell’ Alcantara is a main tourist attraction in Sicily. The best time to visit the gorge is in the early morning when it is still quiet and nature shows itself in full splendor.
