The Gran Sasso massif of Italy
Established in 1991, it is located between Abruzzo (provinces of Teramo, L’Aquila and Pescara), Lazio (province of Rieti) and Marche (province of Ascoli Piceno). It extends over a predominantly mountainous area, between the Gran Sasso massif of Italy and the Monti della Laga mountain range. It is divided into 11 districts. The park offers visitors the possibility of interesting excursions, immersed in the beauty of nature and art: waterfalls, woods, ancient sheep tracks and Benedictine abbeys. Its ski resorts are very popular. Among the numerous species of flora and fauna present, we mention black pines, firs, birches, cornelians, gentians, beeches, field mushrooms, porcini, Abruzzo chamois, red deer, roe deer, Apennine wolf, Marsican brown bear, golden eagle.
The rocky massif of the Gran Sasso includes the calcareous walls of the Corno Grande and the Corno Piccolo, it stretches along the Campo Imperatore plateau and is wrapped on the northern side by magnificent beech trees. It is very popular with hikers, mountaineers and skiers. Less well known are the Monti della Laga, spectacular in spring thanks to the abundance of water. Protected since 1995, the two massifs offer a magnificent journey into the nature and traditions of Abruzzo
