Excursions to the Gorges of Tiberius

The Gorges of Tiberius, site Geopark recognized by UNESCO, are located along the river Pollina in the Madonie Park in the San Mauro Castelverde. Gole, about 400 meters long and as high as up to 50 meters, are made up of limestone rocks formed in the upper Triassic.

The visit to the Gorges of Tiberius is a trip back in time, in a wild and unknown accessible to all, but recommended only to those who truly love the unspoiled nature, silence and live a unique sensory experience to discover a primordial world dating back some 200 million years ago a completely preserved even today, as very few other places in the world, where the changing seasons and plasma model the surrounding ecosystem.

Visiting the Gorges means discovering fossils of gastropods, the many bird nests also just inches from the water, the numerous caves once inhabited by bandits and legends related to them and to the place, that of the famous Miricu, the Truatura and Monster, the play of light that are created between the water and the walls, the contrast between the warm winds outside and cool inside, and if you are lucky, even the eagle in flight.
