Things to do in Sicily? Located in the Natural Reserve of the Wood of Malabotta, this site is characterized for the presence of large blocks of limestone sandstone with the most bizarre shapes and meanings: an eagle, a lion, a praying goddess, and many other profiles shaped by nature.
According the most acclaimed theory, of the professor Gaetano Pantano, the Argimusco would represent a sort of astronomical calendar that would suggest the presence of primitive settlements in the area.
Obviously, this is only a hypothetical interpretation and for this reason why visitors enjoy giving their own opinion, making this place one of the most particular things to see in Sicily. Starting from Messina, after 1 hour and 40 minutes we will reach Montalbano where we will stop for a short break in a local cheese factory to taste the famous “provola di Montalbano”.
