About
This excursion allows you to visit a location that is not at all known in Sicily but with unique and unforgettable characteristics. Immense Cyclopean walls that rise suddenly from the Mediterranean scrub bring the visitor back to the charm of the remote past. And continuing the journey the journey continues bringing it back this time in the Middle Ages, with the ruins of Brucato. A few kilometers away is the imposing peak of Mount San Calogero (Nature Reserve) and a huge glimpse of the Tyrrhenian coast. The excursion takes place in an exceptional naturalistic context, among thick shrubs of Mediterranean scrub and secular olive trees. Our environmental hiking guides will tell you every detail and every secret of the places we have been through, leaving open the various hypotheses about what these places meant in the past.

    Zona Archeologica di Mura Pregne
    Stop: 3 hours
    Through a suggestive route to the slopes of Monte San Calogero, travelers will wander among olive groves, pastures and Mediterranean scrub, discovering some of the most interesting and little-known traces of Sicily's past. The "cyclopean" Mura Pregne, over 10 meters high and erected with imposing limestone blocks, whose function is still partly obscure, are what remains of an ancient community, lived, it is assumed, in the 6th century BC Nearby is the so-called Dolmen. Both are an archaeological "unicum" of western Sicily. Continuing along the path, of high naturalistic value, one enters the medieval Brucato, a busy center with churches and a castle, whose ruins are still visible and appreciable. The town, founded in the 12th century, was abandoned just two centuries later due to the baronial wars that tore Sicily apart. Wide views of the Tyrrhenian coast and the Madonie enrich the excursion. For those who want it, a rich gastronomic break can be made to pay homage to the local agricultural specialty, the artichoke.
