Hiking in Sicily - from Pomieri to Monte Quacella

Sicilia - Parco delle Madonie

p> Starting from S.P. 54, in Pomieri district, the route follows a path that quickly rises in altitude and through a mixed forest leads us to reach the Plain of Iola. From here we continue to the South-Eastern slope of Monte Quacella from where you can oversee an amphitheater that got the same name to get to the summit (1869 m). They are also known as the Sicilian Dolomites thanks to a similar composition of rocks. Here a hiker stands in front of a breathtaking scenery, ranging from the peaks of the entire chain of Madonie mountains to the sea, passing through the inland area typically used for grain crops. The descent is expected through Vallone Fra Paolo, through the steep beech forest that runs along Mount Daino, where you can observe centuries-old specimens of Sycamore maple.
