Sinagra is a small town, named after the river of the same name, which runs from Nebrodi mountains down to the sea. It is located approx. 11 km from the nearest beaches at Ponte Naso, but in comparison to most towns in these parts that sit on a vantage point, Sinagra lies in the valley.
The city is surrounded by dense groves of walnut trees that cover the surrounding hillsides. Despite the proximity to the sea, there are several restaurants here which specialise in meat and forest products (mainly fungi). The town's 3,500 inhabitants live a quiet life in a city where the most important meeting places are cafes on the square and a playground along the river. Tourism here is an unknown phenomenon and the few travellers who come here are the city's own residents who have moved to northern Italy or abroad, but who faithfully come back to keep their summer vacation "home".
