The itinerary occurs on the eastern flank of Mount Etna among chestnut and hazelnut groves through old gravel roads which constituted an important communication system for the rural economy.

During the walk we find numerous old houses and farms with millstone, a sign of the presence of vineyards in areas that today are colonized by chestnut trees. Continuing we meet the lava of 1928 and the area of the eruptive vents.

The area is characterized by numerous hornitos, conical structures built up by lava ejected through an opening in the crust of a lava flow. On the way back we will visit the Church of Magazzeni built in 1958.
Recently, to avoid vandalism, the entrance of the Church has been closed with a gate that nevertheless allows the view of the interior of the building. Finally, we continue the visit with the  the largest and oldest known chestnut tree in the world: the Hundred horses chestnut, a tree of about 2000 years old!
