The Sicily region
Sicily, the largest and most important of the Mediterranean islands (25,708km2), owed its ancient name Trinacria to its triangular shape. The modern name Sicilia is derived from that of its ancient inhabitants, the Sicels or Siculi. Physically it is a continuation of the chain of the Apennines on the one hand, and of the Atlas mountains on the other. But it appears that far from Sicily being joined at a comparatively recent epoch to Calabria, the Strait of Messina is actually narrower now than in former ages. The island is mountainous across the north and easth, with plateaux in the centre, lowering towards the south, and fertile coastal plains. Etna, the largest volcano in Europe, dominates the easth and much of the centre of Sicily. The island is notorious for its earthquakes. Fumarole, macalube, or diminutive mudvolcanoes, and thermal springs are of frequent occurrence. Within Sicilian waters are included many lesser islands: the Aeolian or Lipari Islands to the north; Ustica to the north-west; the Egadi to the west; and Pantelleria and the distant Pelagian Isles to the south west. Of the meagre rivers the largest are the Simeto, Salso, Belice, and Platari; most of the smaller streams are dry in summer.Sicily numbers 4,680,700 inhabitants. Palermo, the capital, is the principal town; Syracuse, Agrigento, Messina, Catania, Caltanissetta, Trapani, Enna, and Ragusa are provincial capitals. The bulk of the population is devoted to agriculture. In the central uplands grain is the chief product, while the coastal regions are devoted to the culture of the vine, the olive, and fruit; the most characteristic product is the “agrumi”, i.e. oranges, lemons, tangerines, etc. Sicilian waters are rich in fish, especially in the Strait of Messina where upwards of 140 species are known, including unusual deepsea varieties. Wild flowers are particularly beautiful all over the island in spring.
Borgo Bonsignore is a little coastal suburb of Ribera in the Agrigento's province. In the area there is the natural reserve "Foce del fiume Platani" with its WWF area next to 4 km of sandy beaches. These wonders of nature compose the superb view of Oasi del Borgo villa resort. The village center is Bonsignore square, with bar, pizzeria, tabacs, restaurant, a little food market and the Saint Pietro church. The area is very calm and only during the summer months many of the near by villas are populated. It's perfect for people who are looking for relaxing accommodations, not noisy and with wonderfull seaview. Borgo Bonsignore is a seaside and a rural village as well. The main Ribera rural activity is the orange cultivation.

The mouth of the river Platani is a place of great naturalistic beauty dominated by Capo Bianco cliff. It represents the first staging area for several migratory birds coming from Africa and, thanks to the diversification of the environments, it offers shelter to a luxuriant and variegated flora and, as a consequence, to a rich and heterogeneous avifauna. The reserve includes the final stretch of the river Platani (which, before flowing into the sea, forms a large bend) and the long sandy stretch of Borgo Bonsignore, bordered by a bar of low dunes..
Eraclea Minoa is part of the town of Cattolica Eraclea and it's located near the river Platani. The area today called Capo Bianco by a white marl hill that looms over the sea nearby. It is easy to reach, after the junction for Borgo Bonsignore just following the signs on. In the beautiful beach of Eraclea Minoa many tourists spread the precious green clay, considered by experts the finest clay, which would have beneficial effects. Spreads over the body and face to beautify the skin, excellent for acne, but also, for inflammation, broken bones, wound healing..
The coast of Torre Salsa is a strip of Eden on Agrigento coastline, an uncontaminated environment that plays host to an extraordinary diversity of vegetation and fauna. The dunes constitute a special environment. A real link between the water and the earth; a remarkable vegetation flourishes on the finest golden sand, which stabilises the sandy mass and embellishes it with flowers, such as the rare perfumed snow white sea lily. The reserve offers magnificent places from which it is still possible to enjoy the sight of immense and uncontaminated panoramas..
