Mount Etna



Mount Etna

Rising up over the Island of Sicily, near the coast touching on the Messina Strait, Etna is the European Continent’s most active volcano, and one of the entire world’s biggest; now it has earned its stripes as an UNESCO World Heritage Site (June, 2013).

Etna represents a natural, terrestrial scientific laboratory, and its vulcanic zones and intense eruptions have been observed and talked about since Antiquity. Writings referring to Etna date as far back as 2,700 years ago, leading the UNESCO World Heritage Centre to declare it as “one of the most documented world records among Volcanoes.”
