    Trip to Alcantara gorge and river in hot summer time will be nice refreshment. The Alcantara Gorges, geological natural art of basalt rock, was created by the eruption of the volcano Monte Moio, Etna's most unusual side crater, around 2400 Before christ. The lava run flooded the entire location of the Alcantara watercourse a s far as its mouth on the coastline, where the Greeks started their primary colony in Sicily.

    In the Sciara Larderia district the river of lava came to a thickness of 70 m. While still white-hot, and due to a telluric settling, a sinuous longitudinal crack opened in the lava over a length of 500 m, 70 m deep and just 5 m wide, so assuming the appearance of a gorge - Sicily, Italy
