The National Park

The National Park of the Casentino, Monte Falterona and Campigna forests forms a natural paradise of 36,000 hectares.

It was founded in 1993 and spans Romagna and Tuscany and includes the Sasso Fratino natural reserv, the entire area of the “pietra”, the biogenetic natural reserves of Campigna, Scodella, Lama, the monumental Verna Forest, and the area of the waterfalls of Acquacheta.

There are about 1200 different plant species, while the animal life, perhaps the most plentiful in the northern Apennines, presents 160 vertebrae species including 84 different bird species and 42 mammals: wolves, deer, bucks, roe, wild boar, mouflon, golden eagles, peregrine falcons, eagle owls, woodpeckers, tawny owls, hoot owls, and many others.
