A very large flat stretch at an altitude of 1900 metres, where the pine forest, Pineta di Linguaglossa thins out towards the bare volcanic slopes above. It is a known station for winter sports and has a sequence of five lifts and numerous eating spots.
It also offers an off-road coach service to take you up towards the summit.
There used to be some hospitality facilities, but these were demolished by a sudden and devastating eruption in 2002, the results of which can still be seen today.
Piano Provenzana is crossed by trails 702, 724 and 721.
