Birdwatching - Aspromonte bottleneck del Mediterraneo

Even this year the activity for the monitoring of the birds of prey's migration after mating started. It is part of the system action: "Rete euromediterranea per il monitoraggio, la conservazione e la fruizione dell'avifauna migratoria e dei luoghi essenziali alla migrazione" (Euromediterranean Network for the Monitoring, the Conservation and the use of the migratory bird species and of the necessary places for migration).
The Aspromonte National Park Authority, in order to spread the results of the activity carried out and to shorten the distance with bird species lovers and stakeholders, will offer daily data about the migration flow. Furthermore, after an agreement with the offices in charge, the Aspromonte National Park Authority will allow volunteers to take part in a monitoring camp carried out in one of the three sighting stations established by the National Park.

Tourist-Sport Activities

For mountain-lovers, Aspromonte is a very interesting place: long walks on foot or by mountain bike, trekking, and tours are only some of the activities which can be practiced in the Park.
The fascinating itineraries develop in a thick vegetation, to enjoy the beauty of the colors of an uncontaminated nature, and to let oneself be lulled by the gurgling of a watercourse.
There are also historical-cultural itineraries: to go along Garibaldi's road, or to find out ancient ruins, architectural jewels, and towns where the ancient Greek is still spoken; for the bravest adventure-lovers, there are uncontaminated and wild lands.
To the inexperienced hikers we suggest the itineraries leading to the mausoleum of Garibaldi, Mt. Basilicò, Nino Martino square, Montalto, the Menta dam, Maesano waterfalls, the old town of Amendolea.
Well-trained hikers cannot miss the itinerary leaving from Bova, crossing the last stretch of the stream Amendolea, and leading to Roghudi, an ancient town placed on a rocky spur surrounded by two streams.
Leaving from this charming town, we can then reach Pesdavoli which is on the brink of a huge landslide and from which you can enjoy wonderful views of Mt. Iofri, the houses of Carrà with their characteristic red roofs, Casalnuovo, and Fiumara la Verde.

Rocca del Drago and Caldaie del Latte, which are rock formations placed along the road leading from Roghudi to Bova plateaus, are worth a visit.
For the bravest ones who want to enjoy the wildest section of Aspromonte, there is another route leading to the valley of the Fiumara di Melito, a ditch full of vegetation, with frequent waterfalls and wells.
However, the possible trails and tours are numberless.
If you love photography, there are Rumia and Costantino Lakes, Polsi nature sanctuary, the valley of the big stones (Pietra Cappa, Pietra Castello, Pietra Lunga, etc.), where you will find unusual beautiful natural sculptures, the rupestrian settlements near Natile, which recall Cappadocia, and the plains of Zevrò and of Zomaro.
However, Aspromonte also means cultural tourism.
In many towns of the hinterland of Calabria, history still lives in the architectural remains: in Africo there is the little church of San Leo, which is one of the few Basilian remains in Aspromonte.
Bova Superiore, together with Samo, Roccaforte del Greco, Gallicianò, and country ward of Chorio are the cradle of grecanic culture.
Moreover, in Bova there is the Norman castle, from which you enjoy a wonderful view of the Ionian coast.
The historical town center houses ancient medieval churches and patrician palaces.
Gerace preserves architectural treasures, like the 12th century castle, the churches of San Francesco and San Giovannello, and the Cathedral, whose columns come from the period of the Locresi.
San Giorgio Morgeto is a little jewel of history of the Magna Grecia preserving important Hellenic remains.
The medieval castle, the Church of San Francesco, and the Monasteries of San Domenico are precious works of art.

If you love snow instead, Gambarie d'Aspromonte is the tourist skiing resort dominating the coast, with Sicily and the Aeolian Islands in the background.
Finally, let's go to the sea with its wonderful coasts and its very rich seabed.
If you practice diving, it is a unique occasion to see not only several relics, but also the black coral, a particular kind of coral living only in Sicily and in the Red Sea.
However, the seaside means also water-skiing and tours by boat to visit holes and caves. And please, do not forget to admire our sunset!
