Things to do, attractions, interesting facts
Area: Cefalù and Madonie
The Madonie Park is the richest place in biodiversity in Sicily and one of the richest in the whole Mediterranean Basin: there are more than 1600 plant entities and many endemic plants among which the most famous is the Madonie Fir. In the Madonie Park there is a rich and precious floristic heritage that includes exclusive species as well as regional and national rarities, including the Astragolo, the Viola, and the Peony. From the faunal point of view, the Park is home to all the mammal species present in Sicily.
The Madonie Park is also an area of great geological interest and is part of the UNESCO Global Geoparks Network. In the past, the Madonie rocks were sea beds that rose a few million years ago thanks to the movement of the tectonic plates: the rocks are therefore rich in marine fossils.
