Argimusco is a high plateau situated just North of Mount Etna in Sicily, between the Nebrodi and Peloritani Mountains.
It lies within the boundaries of the communes of Montalbano Elicona, Tripi, and Roccella Valdemone.

From Argimusco it is possible to view the panoramas of the volcano Etna, the Aeolian Islands, the mountains
of Rocca Salvatesta
Montagna di Vernā, cape Tindari, cape Calavā and cape Milazzo.

Numerous megaliths, which local tradition attributes to a prehistoric population, are found in this area, as are ancient menhirs and almost unrecognizable dolmens. It is generally considered that these are, in fact, completely natural, being produced by wind erosion.

The Eagle

Among the rocky formations of Argimusco are made a series of megaliths that are believed to be the remains of an ancient astronomical observatory.

It is assumed that the entire area had been used since the prehistoric times as a place of worship and ritual use.

According to some Sicilian scholars, it could be a sort of natural sanctuary.

Randazzo, Sicily

Argimusco is probably the only example of a megalith site in Sicily.

No signs of prehistoric man’s presence, such as pottery, tools or bones, are found around the presumed monuments.
