Herodotus told us that Daedalus arrived in Sicily and he was a guest of Kokalos, the king of Sicani. I will lead you in the land of Kamikos, where Kokalos lived, on Sicani Mountains, in the inland of Agrigento. S. Angelo Muxaro is a traditional small village, where the time seems to be stopped one century ago. This small village has a long history linked to the myth and offers the possibility of an interesting walking tour to visit the cemetery of tholos (rocky cut chamber graves) and the small archaeological museum. In one of these tholoi is where there were discovered important golden objects, today held at the British Museum of London.
The landscape is amazing and the people are very kind. Would you like to join us?
