Piano dell’Acqua


This is a small flattish area, at a height of about 700 metres, a short distance from Ballo, a district of Zafferana Etnea. Its name comes from the fact that it contains some drainage points on the side of Valle di San Giacomo, which supply water to the towns below. Trails 704 and 724 can be reached from here, together with the Sentiero delle Ginestre trail. It also marks the starting point of Trail 742, leading to the top of Monte Calanna, an excellent vantage point, with views over the inner Bove Valley.
