State-owned Botti equipped area

State-owned Botti equipped area

The Botti equipped area was built in the homonymous state-owned wooded complex and is persistent in the Municipality of Longi. The forest is mainly composed of oaks and pines, the former natural, the latter instead of artificial plants built around the [60s, as it was in vogue in those days to plant Mediterranean pines at full blast.

To access the equipped area it is advisable to start from Longi, continue on the provincial road to Portella Gazzarra, always continue on the provincial road, here on a dirt road towards Bosco Mangalavite and after about 2 km. we arrive at the Botti wooded complex where there is the equipped area we wanted to reach.

Having traveled through very varied landscapes that were the very suggestive naturalistic background of our trip, the area equipped with some minimum comforts will satisfy us with the choice of this area to spend a carefree and relaxing day in the open air.

Note on Sources

The information on the equipped state-owned areas has as its main source the website of the Regional Forestry Department of Sicily (continuously updated) to which is added a very interesting brochure entitled "The State Equipped Areas in Sicily" of the same department published in 1999 with the Editorial Coordination of the 8th Group - Promotion, Development and Research, editors Agostino Gatto and Valeria Restuccia. Further information was obtained from direct access to the areas and from interviews with experts and operators in the sector.
