Capo Calavà nature trail

Following the SS 113 near Villa Giulia, a naturalistic path begins which winds along the ridge of the Rocca di Capo Calavà, tracing the traces of what in Roman times was the Via Consolare Valeria which, under the Aragonese dominion, changed its name in Trazzera Regia, which connected Capo Calavà with Randazzo and Gioiosa Marea with Patti. The route of great naturalistic and landscape appeal, ends on the top of the Rocca di Calavà, where there is an ancient watchtower. The path is totally immersed in the Mediterranean scrub including broom, heather, fern, wild asparagus, oregano, mugwort and many other typical varieties of the Nebroid area.
