Granvilla state-owned equipped area


Starting from Vizzini take the municipal road in the direction of Militello Vai di Catania. You pass the SS n. 194 Catania-Ragusa and after about 2 Km. You will find the signs for Demanio Granvilla. Walk another 500 meters and you will arrive at the equipped area.
The Demanio Granvilla is bordered by a forest gate but the area in question is outside the fence and is found on the right. Tall and imposing pines are the main forest cover, interspersed with cypresses and eucalyptus. Interesting is the undergrowth vegetation rich in brambles and wild asparagus. The receptivity of the area is given by over fifteen wooden tables and benches, drinking fountains with water, various fire points, waste bins and other structures under construction. Less than two hundred meters from the equipped area there is a forest shelter used by the staff assigned to the area itself and for forest workers. The cars can be parked along the perimeter of the area, in special openings of the road, in an area outside the equipped area. There are many people who frequent this area, both scout groups and hikers and hikers.

Note on Sources

The information on the equipped state-owned areas has as its main source the Internet site of the Regional Forestry Department of Sicily (constantly 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.
