Case Bosco Chiuso
Before it was bought by the State Forestry Agency, it was known as Case Pappalardo, named for the last owner of the houses, which were built to serve the lumber business carried out there. They are located at 1219 metres and are one of the two natural access points to the middle area of Etna, starting out from the village of Maletto. They can be reached by private vehicle, although vehicles must be left at the barrier to continue along Trail 712, where motor vehicles are prohibited.
