Bberritta Canyon

Updated: Feb 26, 2023

This place has always fascinated walkers with its energy and purity.

Starting from the tiny village of Headwater spring, following a forest path and a typical Hybleian mule track, we will reach the ruins of the Bordonali houses, from here a very ancient stairway will take us to the Bberritta canyon, in the presence of its splendid spring.

At the end of the walking, we will pay a visit to Paola and Giovanni's to taste fresh ricotta, scacce netine, caponata, cold meats, vegetable tarts, and fresh cannoli.

All zero kilometre!

"At the end of a day spent in nature we will definitely be better off".
