Participants will be involved in an enthralling paddle to discover the nature reserve of Capo Gallo and the evocative atmosphere of the Oil Grotto.
Capo Gallo is a promontory in north west Palermo and separates the two important gulfs of Mondello and Sferracavallo, where districts of the city with the very same name lie. The nature reserve covers an area of almost 586 hectares.
The coastal side of Capo Gallo extends west from its cape to Punta Barcarella. The limestone rock has meant the sea has been able to erode rather bizarre shapes and created a series of caves, such as the Oil Grotto, reminiscent of the Blue Grotto on Capri. In ancient times these caves were inhabited by man and prehistoric drawings and other archeological remains of significance have been unearthed in each of them.
The stretch of sea that connects Capo Gallo with Isola delle Femmine was declared a marine reserve in 2002, with the name Capo Gallo / Isola delle Femmine Marine Reserve.
