Since I’ve personally visited and experienced all of the cultural marvels this wildly colorful island offers, I can absolutely say that they are all worth a visit if you find yourself in the area and want to explore just a tiny fraction of the island’s countless wonders. The area where the Rifugio is located is called the Valle Dei Miracoli, or Valley of the Miracles. Sicily is an extremely beautiful and peaceful region of pastoral valleys punctuated by the Iblei mountain range that gently winds down to the sea. Having been an important crossroads for the passage of the boats of the Carthaginians, Romans, and Greeks, this area also is home to numerous archaeological discoveries from different historical periods––from the Amphora Hills discovered on the seabed of the Mediterranean to finds dating back to the Second World War like The “Sicilian Stonehenge”, which dates back to between 6000 and 3000 BC. It was found near one of the bunkers used by the armies during WWII.
