The departure will be from our base in Giardini Naxos, from there you start to climb up the valley passing through the small villages and the superb sight over the river from which the valley takes its name "Alcantara". This river has magnificent gorges made of natural basalt in which the waters coming from the Peloritani mountains have cut channels. Going up the valley and crossing the countryside of Francavilla, you will continue your arduous climb between grazing lands and uncontaminated nature, toward the summit of the Sella Mandrazzi at 1200 meters above the sea level, a point of fabulous views from which you can admire the Aeolian islands and Calabria.
The long downhill road quickly leads us through the village of Novara di Sicilia arriving at the sea and leading us to the fantastic Sanctuary of Madonna of Tindari better know as Shrine of the Black Madonna, the latter dating back to the 15th century, stands above the magnificent "Mare di Oliveri" and the "Laghetti di Marinello". In addition, it is also possible to visit the nearby archaeological area of Greek origin, which contains one of the best-preserved Greek theaters of the era. The end of your day will conclude by returning to our base by the same route.
