Santa Ninfa

“The pomegranite and the frogs” Fountain

Situated in the western hinterland of Sicily between the Modione and Belice rivers which flow into the sea slightly further ahead in Selinunte, Santa Ninfa suffered serious damage in the earthquake of 1968, but its inhabitants reacted bravely to the tragedy and created many industries including the production and commerce of local products like high quality meat, coming from native breeding farms, and revitalizing the traditional textile craftwork, concentrated in particular on the production of lace, embroidery and material. The presence in the area of a complex system of galleries and meanders of great speleological-natural interest, allowed the institution in 1996 of the “Santa Ninfa Cave” Oriented Natural Reserve for the protection of its marvellous geo-morphological patrimony. Nearby, the suggestive archaeological site of Mount Finestrelle is to be found, with numerous caved tombs.
