sponsored by

Founded in 1987, this park covers an area of ​59,000 hectares. Its goal is to protect the area of ​the volcano, which is a Regional Park. The environment is very rich and manifold: in it live orange trees, lemon trees, tangerines, agaves, prickly pears, bananas, eucalyptus, palm trees and of course vineyards. Over 500 meters of altitude we can find trees of pistachios, almonds, hazel, chestnut and oaks, beeches, birch, pine. And yellow, fragrant broom of Etna. The fauna consists of small mammals such as foxes, hedgehogs, martens... and birds such as woodpeckers, finches, hoopoe... But even reptiles such as the viper, and butterflies such as the Aurora Etna (Anthocharis Damone).
