Avola is a seaside town near Noto, with valuable monuments and interesting history. Destroyed by the earthquake of 1693, the town was rebuilt in late Baroque style tending to liberty. The map of the city, if you see it from above, looks like a hexagonal cell.
Avola is famous for the production of high quality almonds used for Sicilian sweets.

The most suggestive attractions to visit in Avola are churchues and squares, the fishing village with its ancient abandoned tonnara, the small and pretty theater, the almond museum and the beautiful and well-equipped sandy beach where there is also a romantic roundabout overlooking the sea.

Walking along a charming road with a breathtaking view, from Avola you reach the Cavagrande di Cassibile nature reserve (it takes about half an hour by car). The reserve is famous for its ponds, along a picturesque winding road with breathtaking views.
