The bear and chamois mountains
The mountains of the bear and the wolf, the golden eagle and the chamois rise in the heart of the Apennines, on the border between Lazio, Abruzzo and Molise. Protected since 1922 by the first Italian National Park, covered by extraordinary beech woods, they amaze the visitor thanks to the blooms, the rocks, the waters, the encounters with the protected fauna. Lower down, the ancient villages thrill with their palaces and churches, the sanctuaries reached by crowded processions, the necropolises and sheep tracks, the wildlife areas and the museums of the Park.
This volume, full of proposals and news, illustrated by over 200 splendid photos, recalls in the best way a holiday to those who have recently discovered the Park, and can suggest new destinations to those who frequent the heart of the Apennines protected for years.
