Trekking Etna North-West Grotta del Burò and Randazzo

Located on the northern slope of Etna, in Randazzo territory, the trail takes its name from the nearby lava flow cave, called Burò, which came to light due to the natural sinking of the vault of an ancient lava flow tunnel. The route, which starts from the equipped area located nearby, runs for over two kilometers and has a vertical drop of about 200 meters.

The landscape is characterized by works of agrarian transformation such as terracing, trazzere, dry stone walls, stone “casudde” and sheepfolds, which represent typical elements of the peasant culture on the slopes of Etna and that only here are so evident and well preserved.
