Welcome to Etna Nord
Piano Provenzana is a touristic area located on the north side of Mount Etna, 18 km above Linguaglossa. Just before Piano Provanzana you find the highest located pine forest in Sicily, the Ragabo forest.

The Etna eruption of 2002
Among the last great events of Piano Provenzana we remember the 2002 eruption. This eruption is also called by scholars “the perfect eruption”.
On October 27, 2002, the Northeast Rift became active and formed a “bottoniera” of eruptive mouths. From here lava began to flow and quickly transformed the tourist resort of Piano Provenzana into a lava desert. Many years of history were erased in a few hours.
