Ancient forest in Abruzzo


The  centennial forest of the Defense

A simple circular walk among huge beech trees with twisted shapes, that make a fairy-tale forest. Wonderful scents of the lichens leafy, tree trunks dug out of the litter of leaves that covers everything like a cloak.
This ancient wood is home to many animals: the fox, the deer, the wolf, the deer, the wild boar, the brown bear to find shelter and food among its mighty trees. These ancient patriarchs are home for rare insects, such as Rosalia alpina, and the nests of numerous peaks, including the rare white-Backed Woodpecker. It will not be difficult to find their traces.
