The Giant Holly Trees of Piano Pomo

Sicily

More Attractions in Sicily

Piano Pomo can easily be reached from Pomieri or the mountain hut Sempria. Piano Pomo is located  at 1,400m above sea level, along the border between Petralia Sottana and Castelbuono. It is nice walk in the fresh and cool mountain air, perfect on a hot Sicilian summer day. You'll see cork oaks, holm oaks and other mountain plants, some of them endemic. In this area of vegetational importance, the Holly tree population of Piano Pomo stands out. One of the five nuclei forms a very thick wood, within which only few  light can filter through. Some of the holly trees are more than 14 m high, 4 m in circumference and more than 300 hundred years old.

One feels like being in a magic forest!
