The Borgo of Boragni
Boragni is a small village at a wonderful scenic view point in the Sciusa Creek Valley, not far from Orco. Dominated by the majestic cliff of “Bastionata di Boragni” – a much loved destination for hikers and climbers – the village is surrounded by terraced olive groves and vineyards.
This is a charming example of a walled-in village, where terraced houses huddle together to form a barrage with very few, narrow openings towards the outside. A picturesque covered stone walkway winds its way through the centre of the village thereby creating a sheltered path among the houses.
The style of both houses and a number of doorways made out of Finale Stone may indicate that the rural hamlet of today first developed sometime in the 18th century. A small chapel dedicated to the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (dated 1725) stands at the edge of the village.
