A green sea

The Lecceta di Torino di Sangro Regional Nature Reserve covers a surface included between the river Sangro and the hill where the British War Cemetery is situated, from the sea up to an altitude of about 115 m. The morphological and microclimatic variability makes the presence of different habitats possible:  the widest habitat is represented by the holm oak and downy oak forest, including 465 plant species, 232 lepidoptera species, 60 bird species. It also represents the only place where the only one living population of Hermann's tortoise (Testudo hermanni) - symbol of the Reserve - lives.
