Discovering Monte Rossomanno

The Rossomanno-Grottascura-Bellia oriented nature reserve is a small natural treasure chest between Enna and Piazza Armerina, one of the green lungs of the province of Enna, the result of a careful reforestation with pines and eucalyptus trees.
We will visit an area inhabited since prehistoric times, a crossroads of ancient roads to and from the sea and pilgrimage routes. Remains of Greek walls and medieval testimonies speak to us through the centuries of our history. Along the way we will discover the fourteenth-century Torre degli Uberti, the remains of a Benedictine convent, the base of a Byzantine church.

A journey through nature, within a still little known reserve. At a short distance, the Dancing Stones or Pupi dancers, ancient limestone outcrops that constitute a geological site of the Rocca di Cerere Geopark.
Medium difficulty route, 10 km round trip.
