Area: Catania and Etna
Its origins date back to 1340 when Duke Giovanni of Aragon had a church dedicated to Sant'Andrea built in the woods of the Milo, to which he assigned a fiefdom and ordered it to be priory of the Church of Catania.
Its history is intimately linked to that of the Etna volcano: between 1950 and 1951 two eruptive vents opened at an altitude of 1800 meters and all the inhabitants were forced to take refuge in nearby centres. Only a year later the town began to repopulate and only in 1955 Milo obtained its autonomy.
Today Milo is a renowned tourist resort much appreciated for the nature that surrounds it, its territory is in fact included in the Etna park, and due to the fact that the climate is cool even during the hot summer days.
