The Appennine mountain range of Nebrodi includes the biggest preserved area of Sicily and it represents the geographical conjunction among Messina, Catania and Enna.

Thick woods, as Mangalaviti, rivers and creeks, rare flora and fauna give life to an extraordinary and complex ecosystem, where golden eagles and griffins fly on the Rocche del Crasto, limestone of the Mesozoic.
Points of excellence from the naturalistic point of view are Monte Soro, Biviere Lake or Sartori and the amazing Catafurco Falls, which waters flow into Marmitta dei Giganti, where having a bath provides unforgettable emotions.
