Equipped Area State Arcibessi Mangiameli
Wooden tables and benches, fountains, toilets and a series of paths built with the typical Ragusan construction style, stone and dry walls, are the structures of this equipped area located relatively close to the town of Chiaramonte and a destination for many hikers or school groups.
Many warning signs suggest to the users of the area respect for the green and mainly to keep the equipped area clean.
To the delight of children and adults in the vicinity, a wildlife area has been created with fallow deer, various species of birds and Tibetan goats, a small lake has also allowed the breeding of geese and German ducks. The area is very popular throughout the year.
Following this artery that climbs into the mountain between trees on the right and left and with the road on the left bordered by a fence, at about 1.500 meters an appropriate signage announces the equipped area that is the destination of our trip. Then follow the asphalted road which after about 2 km gives way to the dirt road and soon we will arrive near a forest house near which the equipped area has been built.
