The Aspromonte National Park covers an
area of approximately 64'000 hectares and is located at the
extreme southern tip of Calabria, bathed by the Tyrrhenian
and the Ionian Sea.
The landscape is of remarkable versatility. On the Ionian
side wide gravel river beds, the so-called Fiumare
and strange rock formations dominate the landscape. In
height we find wild canyons and countless waterfalls, and
the Tyrrhenian side is overgrown by lush green beech forest.
And who ascends the highest peak, Montalto with its 1956 m
asl will be rewarded with a breath-taking panoramic view
into all directions.
The Aspromonte has seen the succession of many
peoples who colonized this unhappy piece of the world in
constant dispute and left it again and helped it this way to
a rich history.
faszinierend ist die rund zehnköpfige Wolfspopolation, die
man allerdings nur schwerlich zu Gesicht bekommt, sowie die
Sprachminderheit der "Area Grecanica", wo die alten Leute
heute noch griechisch sprechen. Particularly fascinating is
the about ten-headed wolf population that one hardly gets to
see, as well as the linguistic minority of the Area
Grecanica, where the old people still speak Greek today.
Let's get together to discover a rough and wild mountain,
and thereby, to know and appreciate nature and culture!
