Dissected by the Alcantara river, Alcantara Park is a location brimming with unique vegetation, lava rock formations, and columnar basalts formed by the icy waters of the Alcantara.

    Our guide Guiseppe was very nice and knew everything. He also accommodated us with the planning, so that we were free to decide how long we wanted to have free time, etc.
