Mojo Alcantara

Volcanic earth, fertile earth

Just north of this delightful town in the Valle dell’Alcantara, lies the most “eccentric” part of Mount Etna, the little cone of Mount Mojo (707 m), the eruptive activity of which seems to have been responsible for the formation of the famous and the destruction of Naxos. From the top, accessible along a comfortable path, it is possible to observe the central part of the Valley, and it is also possible to descend inside the crater, where the eruptive mouth was located.


The town is situated in the green Mojo Plain, lapped by the Alcantara. The area in question is one of the most important farming areas in the province of Messina, where vegetable crops and the area’s famous peaches are grown.
In tribute to this delicious fruit, the famous “Peach Fair” is held every year on the second Sunday in August.


But by far the most important event of the year is the Festival of the Holy Crucifix, celebrated in the last week of September, during which one of the last animal markets still held in Sicily takes place.


The Church of S. Maria delle Grazie (17th century), which houses an artistic wooden crucifix by Fra Umile da Petralia and the Church of S.Antonino (15th century ruins) are of considerable historical and artistic value.
