Sclafani Bagni

Province of Palermo

Sclafani Bagni has an interesting and charming Castle located on the top of a rocky outcrop.

Sclafani Bagni was an ancient Greek village and it name means Temple of Peace, because of a Temple of Minerva built in the location of Ambica. The tiny village has an interesting and charming Castle located on the top of a rocky outcrop, you can even visit one of its massive towers. Framed by the Bosco di Bomes and its lake, Scalfani Bagni has an amazing undisturbed environment, offering amazing views of hills, mountains and caves preserved in the Bosco della Favara Nature Reserve. In addition, Parco delle Madonie is responsible for preserving more than half of the Sicilian plant species such as the Abies nebrodensis which is dying out; and it is home to an abundance of Sicilian wildlife. For this reason the park has been included as a European Geopark since 2003.
