A path between cork oaks

Monte Minerva is located in the territory between Villanova Monteleone and Monteleone Roccadoria, near Lake Temo.  

The excursion is easy.  We start at the historic Palazzo Minerva, once the royal hunting lodge, go along a path through a forest of scrub, oaks and cork oaks, and reach the mountain plateau within an hour.  

Here we’ll see some ancient oaks, and you’ll learn about cork is transformed.  On the top of the voulanic mountains we might even see some cows, sheep and wild donkeys.  
 After a break, we descend on the other side of the mountain, walking along a forest rangers’ path that will lead to the base of the mountain in 90 minutes.

We can visit the Lake Temo and the ruins of the castle in the nearby village of Monteleone Roccadoria.  Throughout the area there are wild boars, hawks, and partridges, and often one can also see griffon vultures from the nearby Capo Marargiu.
