Guided Walk to the Shepherd

This circular walk begins in the village of Sant’Ambrogio.   Initially, we start at 150mts. a.s.l. and go up the old stony mule track, continuing onto forest tracks and through cork oak woods, “Bosco di Guarneri”, reaching 360m. The path contours around the mountain behind Guarneri with views across the Madonie Mountain range.


On the way we can stop at the shepherd to taste the freshly made ricotta cheese, before returning on a small path above the coastline back to the village.
