An expanse of maquis behind Bibbona

This regional state property includes the Bibbona State Reserve. The forest area had been widely exploited during the reign of the grand dukes to provide the Royal Ironworks of Cecina - where iron was smelted - with the necessary firewood. What we can see today is a large area covered with forests and maquis, with valuable landscape, plant and faunal aspects.
Holm oak forests, together with other trees and high maquis prevail in this area.
There is a widespread network of nature itineraries which can be covered on foot, on horseback or by mountain bike. Furthermore, there are a botanical trail for blind people, which can be also used by people with mobility disabilities, and an archery trail.
