The Green Heart of Basilicata

The Park covers an area of 27,027 hectares and safeguards a wide area situated in the center of the region. This area presents important naturalistic, historical, and ethno-anthropological values: the forest of Gallipoli Cognato, covering more than 4,200 hectares; the woodland of Montepiano, consisting in imposing turkey oak specimens, Mediterranean maquis with residual nuclei of hoalm oak, sandstone rocks forming the strange silhouettes of Dolomiti Lucane in Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa, and remains of the walls of the town built in the 4th century BC at the top of Mt. Croccia.
