The park has six mountains that are over 1,500 metres (4,900 ft) and many more that are over 1,000 metres (3,300 ft). The highest is Pizzo Carbonaraat 1,979 metres (6,493 ft), second in height only to Mount Etna. As well as being a nature reserve, the park is an inhabited area with dozens of little villages and small towns many of which trace their origins to medieval times. The park is also home to a number of castles and numerous ancient churches.Lunch at a local restaurant in Petralia. Continue to Gangi. Gangi's origines have been connected to the ancient Greek city of Engyon, or Hebrita, but this theory remains unconfirmed. Traces of Roman presence are instead testified by archaeological excavations under the Abbey of Gangivecchio. Later, after the unification of Italy, Gangi was the centre of fierce suppression of brigands who lived in the area. In 1926 it was the location of one of the hardest repression of mafia in Italy, carried out by the local prefect Cesare Mori. Dinner and overnight in hotel.
