Description of the trail
Starting from the headquarters of the Pro Loco of Panza, where a street that runs through the center of the hamlet, through a path that passes through a thick grove of oaks and heather, at the top of the bay of Pelara, important geological site, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view; The descent is introduced by a steep staircase with wooden steps carved into the tufa that lead to a stratified wall of pumice, ash and lapilli. From here the trail winds through a lush grove of oaks and holm oaks, but we also find species typical of the Mediterranean maquis: the heather, arbutus and mastic. Beyond the clearing, a scale rustic, made by volunteers of the Pro Loco Panza, allows you to overcome the difference in an easy way, to get to the coast and the sea. The lifts will be accompanied by the essences and colors of the plants that grow in the bay and will take us to the tip of Mount of Panza, where the eye is lost in the immensity of the sea. A viewpoint that invites to meditation aimed at rebalancing mind and body. Along the way, just in front of the immensity of the scenario, Jayadeva of the Yoga Center ‘Il Germoglio’, will propose a Pranayama experience to get a sense of breath, several minutes of meditation to use deep energy of this natural jewel and some “asana” (yoga positions) to achieving a perfect psycho-physical balance. In addition to the typical coastal vegetation is of particular interest the presence of orchid Serapis. Going back to a certain point by a road we come to a viewpoint over the bay of Sorgeto. After a series of geological observations/nature on the area, we will drop down to talk about the phenomenon of hot water typical of the area tasting beneficial effects. Interesting excursion from a historical-natural but mainly emotional perspective.
