Castagno della Nave

Castagno della Nave

In the territory of Mascali, on the border with Sant’Alfio village, there is the millennial Castagno della Nave, called by the farmers “Arrusbighiasonnu”. This nickname was assigned to the tree because of its long and low foliage that hit the faces of the peasants while, on the back of a mule, they returned tired from work awakening them from torpor.
