Maremontis promotes the invaluable heritage of this magnificent Sicily
A day to discover the green heart of Sicily: the Nebrodi Park. An itinerary in the uncontaminated places of the largest protected area on the island in the Mediterranean Center. Crossing the ridge, from the Tyrrhenian coast, you reach Portella Femmina Morta-Villa Miraglia, from here continue to Monte Soro (1847 m), the highest peak of the park; just before reaching the top you can admire a monumental maple. You enter into a dense stretch of forest, characterized by the presence of beeches, here and there large clearings dotted with tall hollies up to 3 m. The Sollazzo Verde forest introduces us to an easy and engaging excursion; Particularly suggestive is the panoramic view of the Aeolian Archipelago, to the south-west you can admire the imposing silhouette of Mount Etna and the view of the Erei mountains. The paved road, partly steep, leads to Lake Maulazzo, an artificial basin, built in the '80s by the Regional Forestry Department. In the forest you can find specimens of black pig Nebrodi, a native Sicilian breed, of ancient origin, rustic, black, almost wild.
A walk through the alleys of small villages, history and traditions, in singular agro silvo pastoral environments. Town planning and landscape, showcase singular buildings, which have their foundation on the rock. At the top of the rocky peak of the village of Cesarò is placed an artistic and monumental statue in bronze, depicting Jesus with open arms, as in the speech of the mountain. Several buildings of great value and historical monuments are present in the various municipalities of the protected area, not only on hills and fortresses in mountain areas, but also on the coast, like Palazzo Gentile, in S. Agata Militello, the representative seat of the Park.
