A Mountain Group of Great Landscape-Natural Value

The Serre represent a rather complex mountain chain of great natural-environmental value, connected in the south with the mountains of Aspromonte. As far as geomorphology is concerned, there are two long and opposite mountain chains (Mt. Covello, Cucco and Mt. Pecoraro) running almost parallel along the Apennine chain. The geological nature of Serre is mainly formed by crystals, with a very widespread presence of granites, porphyries, serpentines, quartziferous diorites, etc., which are well evident from the upper stretches to the final stretches of the watercourses. Further geological features of Serre Park are the gullies, characterizing the slopes of the sub-mountainous strips above all in the north and in the east.
