Aspromonte! A Marvellous Naturalistic, Cultural, and Human Experience

Aspromonte National Park is situated in the southern part of the Apennines in Calabria. This strip of granitic-crystalline origin resembles a giant pyramid. The area is near the sea and reaches 2,000 meters of height with its many mountain peaks and plateaus of marine sedimentary origins. The Park territory, deeply marked by a number of watercourses, is also characterized by numerous species such as the Wolf, the Peregrine, the Eagle Owl, and the Goshawk, and by wide forests of beech tree, silver fir, black pine, holm oak, chestnut tree, and Mediterranean maquis. A couple of rare species live here: Bonelli's Eagle and the tropical fern Woodwardia radicans. Surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, the Park is enriched by considerable historical, artistic, and archaeological aspects, evidences of the archaic, classical, Greek, medieval, and modern culture.
