Tufo Gipsy is one of the naturalistic realities of the Madonie territory; that is suited to excursions of educational and environmental type.
An example of the geological aspects present is gypsum crystal combined with marine shell fossils, another example being the culture of "Carcare" , structures used in the artisan working of chalk.
Tufo Gipsy is reachable by a mountain road which goes from Passo L'Abate district to Margi district. After approximately two km the relief viewed from afar appears like an islet soaked in a yellow summer-sea, green in spring and occasionally white in winter.
All sourrounded by pastures of forage cereal and grazing land. Among the chalk rocks there is a predominance of lush vegetation typical of the Mediterranean Maquis. Part of the local fauna, in particular the wild rabbit and porcupine, find their ideal natural habitat.
