Province of Catania

Milo is located in the province of Catania and is characterized by wonderful chestnut and pine woods.

The ancient village of Milo was founded by  the Duke Giovanni d’Aragona in 1340. Later, the feudal town was included in the village of Mascali until 1815. Between 1950 and 1951 Milo was destroyed by a tremendous volcanic eruption and its citizens were forced to take refuge in the nearby towns. Today the colors of Giovanni d’ Aragona ( orange and yellow ) are present in the crest of the town mixed with the Cross of S. Andrea who is the patron saint of the village. The most important cultural attractions of the village are the Botanical Garden; the Scarbaglio Park characterized by Chestnut and pine woods and the Church of Sant’Andrea, built in the 17th century on the ruins of the ancient church erected by Giovanni d’Aragona, has three naves and a very simple and minimalistic facade.
