The Argimusco area is a vast plateau at 1200 mt above sea level and is located near the medieval town of Montalbano Elicona (ME) and near the Natural Reserve Bosco di Malabotta.
The Argimusco Rocks are one of the most interesting rocky complexes of the southern Italy. Wind and water shaped the enormous rocks, creating stones with particular anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figures. These beautiful rocks, the landscape, the view of Etna and the sea, were chosen to practice astronomy, a natural astronomical observatory. Argimusco is called the ‘Sicilian Stonehenge’ but this is incorrect because they are no megaliths but natural stones.
If you like nature and the panoramic views, this is the right place to go.
