Dicovery Trek to Monte Kronio

Monte Kronio Discovery

Level of difficulty: medium
Time: about 3.5 hours
Equipment: comfortable, stretch and traspirant clothing

Delve into local folklore and customs as you trek along empty trails to discover unexplored caves on this ancient route. Monte Kronio  is famous for its therapeutic sulphur springs found in caves which, legend has it, were created by the mythical inventor Daedulus. Thanks in part to balmy temperatures which hover between 37 and 39 degrees celsius, the oldest spa scene in the world sprung up in these caves during ancient times. The region also has another famous claim to fame: in 2017, researchers discovered the earliest example of Italian winemaking here in its caves, dating back 6,000 years. Find out more as you wander Sciacca’s protected nature reserve, then end your walk on Monte Kronio’s summit, scanning the skies for kestrels and rare Bonelli's eagles as you savour panoramic vistas towards Sciacca.
