(Rocca di Mezzo, 02 Gen 12) The nature of Sirente Velino Regional Park is fascinating and amazing, and invites you to discover it. The uncontaminated plateaus surrounded by Sirente and Velino mountain chains, the beech tree woodlands and the high-mountain pastures, the karst basins of the plateaus, the thick woodlands, the luxuriant valleys crossed by river Aterno. And the wild animals sleeping under the fortified villages, the watchtowers, the ruins of the castles, the rural churches, the archaeological areas, the mountain rural villages. Our Park is all this and much more. We await you! Also this year the calendar of Sirente Velino Park has been prepared using some photos participating in the photographic contest "Le stagioni del Parco" (The Park Seasons) and some photos taken from the Park Authority photo archive. The initiative aims at promoting the knowledge of all the Park beauties through the eyes of the people who love it and visit it.
