Belpasso - Chiesa madre - framacamo.net

Etna B&B resides in the heart of Belpasso, in the vicinity of the Mother Church, Santa Lucia (XVIII century) and is part of the Parco dell' Etna (Etna Park Territory).

Belpasso is denominated as La Scacchiera dell’ Etna (Literally - Etna's Chessboard), because of its original eighteenth-century urban street plan. From this strategic position you can reach Etnaland Aquatic Attraction Park in 15 minutes and Etnapolis shopping mall in 10.

Belpasso is also the City of 100 Sculptures, a giant open-air museum with the installation of 100 sculptures in lava stone along the streets and squares by artists from all over the world. The works of art are located along the majestic main street, Via Roma, which crosses the heart of the historic center and caresses the baroque style of Palazzo Bufali.

Mount Etna is a 25 minute uphill drive that will bring you to Rifuggio Sapienza at Etna Sud (Etna's South Gate), where you may begin your excursion either on foot, on off-road 4-wheel drive or Cable Car (Funivia dell' Etna).

Historic attractions like the Norman Castle of Paternò or the Norman Castle of Motta Sant'Anastasia are in close by territory. Belpasso is also renown for BAR Condorelli, in particular for their famous 'Torroncini' and the Nino Martoglio Theater (named after the great director, writer and poet native to Belpasso). You can also observe rare unusual natural gaseous phenomena at the so called Salinelle di San Biagio.
