Boragni is located on the hillside in the Sciusa river valley, not far behind Orco, surrounded by terraced olive groves and vineyards.
This little group of Mediterranean houses is a clear example of fortified town, built by farmers to protect themselves from Saracen raids. Buildings are arranged in a circle, leaning against one another, with few and small openings to the outside equipped with railings, while inside there are well-protected, small open spaces used as gardens and courtyards. Boragni is crossed from side to side by a fortified passage covered with stone vaults, a sure way of internal communication, suddenly illuminated by the green of small gardens.
Thanks to its magnificent surroundings, Boragni is a destination for hikers and climbers: from here depart paths for Strapatente and Balconi caves and to nearby rock climbing. In the so-called "Bastionata di Boragni", a large cliff overlooking the village, the water has eroded strongly karstic rock leaving a picturesque landscape, full of crevices, caves and cracked walls in which there are many climbing routes of all levels.
