It’s a unique landscape, not really known,very pleasant, you can see going up and down the province of Ragusa.
Let’s discover together a territory rightly defined “an island inside an island” for its particular gastronomic tradition, for the personality simple and frank of its inhabitants,for its agglomerations, “the twelve sisters”, and for its rich history and traditions.
It starts with the three cities recognized by the UNESCO World Heritage Site: Modica, Ragusa and Scicli rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake, which provide a remarkable testimony of the exuberant genius of late Baroque art and architecture; we continue with the reliefs, the Iblei mountains, made up of calcareous rock tables, which the centuries-old flow of streams has shaped, giving rise to natural caves and large pools where rainwater collects.
Then you walk through the hills that follow each other incessantly, in a soft landscape, colored by the yellow of the gramigna and marked, with harmony, by the hand of man.
At sight the dense lattices of the dry stone walls appear, which delimit and rationally articulate the cultivated areas and the “masserie”, agricultural complexes, sometimes centuries old, with the typical courtyard plant, in the center of which is located “u bagghiu” with the well.
Then you come across the woods and nature reserves, the last spectacular evidence of the lush vegetation that once cloaked a large part of Sicily and finally reaches the sea coasts predominantly of very fine sand gently degrading in the limpid and pure sea (awarded by the Flag years Blue), which lie placidly on the sea, interspersed with macconi, typical sand dunes, covered with broom, mastic and juniper.
