Querce di Monte Egitto

In the western sector of the Etna Park, in the Bronte area, there is one of the most precious treasures of the entire Sicilian flora: the centuries-old oaks of Monte Egitto. It is a group of age-old trees of extreme beauty and monumental stature. The path that leads to admire these masterpieces of nature remains, for the moment, still far from mass tourism that we are now accustomed to seeing in the surroundings of Etna. This is fortunate for true forest lovers who can enjoy in tranquility one of the most enchanting places not only of Etna, but of the whole of Sicily.
