I Love Ustica

Path of the woods

Article Index

Going up, after a few meters you reach a path with steps leading to the Culunnedda (literally, Little Column) and the former Semaforo (Ustican way to address the former weather station). You will continue on the main path of the Carbonari, and a little later you will get an exceptional view of the whole plain of Tramontana with its large cultivated areas and Mediterranean scrub. During springtime, these show lovely colors: the white of euphorbias, the yellow of brooms, the purple of borage flowers, in the midst of the shades of green that stands out against the dark rocks of lava.

You will continue for about five hundred meters, until you reach the saddle of the two central hills: Guardia Grande (literally, Big Guard) and Guardia del Turco (literally, Guard of Turk). Then the path splits and continuing on the left, a little further, you wull be able to see the caves, in use until about 1970, called Grotte del Lapillo (literally, Caves of Lapillus).
