Forests, centuries-old UNESCO Heritage site

Selva Moricento is one of the five centuries old snowy woods of the Abruzzo National Park, a recognised UNESCO world Heritage site. The large area occupied d to this old beech forest, one of the oldest in Europe, with the beech trees of over 500 years of age, is within walking distance with a path that presents no particular technical difficulties, but that also goes very in one of the most remote corners of the Park. Between sinkholes, glades, and ridges, it extends for hundreds of hectares and in it live bears, wolves and many rare species of insects and birds. The great biodiversity that characterizes it is to see everywhere signs of life among the ancient trees that create a magical atmosphere and large peace.

In the winter period is even more impressive this path covered with snow, and fun to go along with the snowshoes.
