Between the territories of Avola, Noto and Syracuse, in the province of Syracuse, Sicily. The Cavagrande del Cassibile nature reserve is a protected natural area located in the municipalities of Avola, Noto and Syracuse, in the province of Syracuse. The reserve was established in 1990 (D.A. of 13 July), managed by the State Forests of the Sicilian Region; it is planned to be included in the area of the Iblei National Park, currently under development.The Reserve was born with the aim of preserving the different riches of its territory both from a naturalistic-landscape point of view and from an archaeological and anthropological point of view, given that the whole area has been inhabited over the millennia and there have been remarkable testimonies in tombs and finds.Defended by the inaccessible sheer walls of the quarry and the proximity of the water, the Sicani, the first known inhabitants of this place, built a necropolis, still difficult to reach.
