Calabria Nature and Sport
An elongate strip of land between two seas, rocky coasts and gentle inlets, woods of centuries-old trees on the mountains and the fragrance of the citrus groves. Characterized by contradictory landscapes, Calabria offers unforgettable experiences for nature lovers. The three natural parks that delimit the areas of Aspromonte, the Silla and the Massif of Pollino help keep intact a natural balance of rare beauty. The wealth of waters, the impressive vegetation, and the variegated fauna make the landscape as luxuriant as it is harsh and inaccessible in certain stretches, as is its rocky heart, the Sila, whose very name is sufficient to conjure up visions of old and not-so-old tales of brigandage.
