Piano del Vescovo


A small flat area, now crossed by the provincial road, S.P. 92 from Zafferana Etnea to the area of Rifugio Sapienza. The name is a reminder that the area and much of the Bove Valley was owned by the Archbishopric of Catania, who used it to earn money from trading snow and lumber. Piano del Vescovo is located at the bottom of a high ledge in basalt rock, known as “Acqua Rocca degli Zappini” and it is a point for joining Trail 727, which, after being crossed by a lava tunnel, leads to Serra del Salfizio.
