The Lava of the 1928 eruption

This path is of interest for historical reasons and also from a volcanological point of view. On November 4,1928, a lava flow reached the gates of the town of Mascali through the torrent Pietrafucile, leaving a trail that can still be seen. We will walk in the shade of an oak forest passing by typical houses built with lava stone and approach a fracture over where we may glimpse and imagine the power of that eruption, which gave origin to seven different lava flows. The seven rivers converged in a single lava flow that destroyed everything in its way. The area where the fracture occurred is now an area planted with hazelnuts and apples, typical products of the area. We will end the day visiting some of the historical places in the area that remained intact.
