The Demaniale forest and the relief of “Mount Navone”

ON THE SLOPES OF A LEGEND

The Demaniale forest and the relief of “Mount Navone”

 

To the west of Piazza Armerina, Mount Navone stands imperious, among plowed fields, south of the Villa Romana del Casale, reaching 754 meters above sea level. Belonging to the chain of Erei, the relief consists of sandy deposits, clays and silty sands of the Pleistocene period. A legend surrounds the mysterious paths and ancient history lingers among the top of its rocks.
