What you'll do

Alcantara Gorges, the great beauty of nature Alcantara Gorges Excellent
Experience nature in the famous and fascinating Alcantara Gorges. Enjoy the beauty of nature and its gorges. Climb the rocks and cooled in the cold waters that flow to the sea or simply select one of the quieter paths to savor in a soft beauty of this natural landscape. THE Alcantara Gorges. They are the high gorges of up to 25 meters wide and 2 meters in the narrowest and widest points 4-5 meters. The natural canyon, contrary to popular belief, was not excavated over thousands of years by water. The Alcantara river flows between volcanic rock that forms its characteristic river bed. On the territory of Motta Camastra at Fondaco Motta is the most impressive gorge and Alcantara famous, over 6 km long and traveled so easily for the first 3. The particularity of this throat consists in the structure of the walls, created by flows of basaltic lava (poor in silicon but rich in iron, magnesium and calcium). The lava is then cooled very quickly, creating prismatic hexagonal pentagonalied forms, which recall the molecular structure of the materials that constitute it.
