This area is an exceptional wealth of cultural and environmental beauties of which the city is the “gate.” From the large Piazza Umberto I built a hexagonal plan, begin the baroque “streets” and you have access to the spectacular natural reserves of Cava Grande of Cassibile and Vendicari.
The flat site of the city of Avola is placed in an extraordinary landscape as between the Ionian sea and the mountains Iblei, or between a coastline of golden sand beaches and the scents of iblensi hills that surround it. The favorable characteristics of the microclimate has allowed the cultivation of sugar cane from the ‘400 to 800, the vine, almond and lemon tree whose fruits are still, even today, to provide high quality products. Avola has joined its name to the world famous agricultural products such as almond “Pizzuta of Avola”, the wine “Nero d’Avola” and the lemon “Femminello Syracuse”.
The Avola Almond, perfect oval, as he wrote Leonardo Sciascia, and Nero d’Avola, born from the homonymous ancient variety, are famous throughout the world for their unique flavors. the main feature of Avola is the “Roundabout on the sea”, a place of great tourist attraction in which are held evenings of music and spectacle of great fun
