Gorges of Alcantara

The river Alcantara marks the boundary between the Provinces of Messina and Catania. Along 27 Km of its length it brushes up against the territory of Randazzo and flows on towards the coast, separating the volcano Mt. Etna from the mountains to the north. The spectacular gorges were created by the erosion and cooling of the lava flowing from the crater of Mount Dolce, between Linguaglossa and Randazzo, on the Etna massif. The gorges show the inner part of the flow with the splendid, columnar fissures of magma rapidly cooled by the gushing water. More than 20m (57 ft) deep the gorges have bizarre basalt prisms dotted here and there with cool spontaneous vegetation.
