Montalbano Elicona and the megaliths of Argimusco

Be ready for a private cultural tour among the Peloritani and the Nebrodi (mountain ranges in Sicily).

The guided tour will start from Montalbano Elicona, which is one of the 100 most beautiful hamlets in Italy. It is a medieval treasure framed by an extremely light blue sky and a colourful landscape. This hamlet was a destination privileged by the emperor Frederick II of Swabia.

The particular rocky formations of Argimusco are made of a series of megaliths that are believed to be remains of an ancient astronomical observatory (a sacred place where old propitiatory rites were made for Mother Goddess). If it is the case, Rocche of Argimusco would probably be the only example of megalith site in Sicily. You should also take the chance to walk the paths among the "cubburi", particular stone buildings with a "tholos" structure used by shepherds as shelters. They were really ancient and part of an agricultural pastoral life.
