STROLLING IN GARGANO NATIONAL PARK AND UMBRA FOREST, ITALY
The last stop of the tour is Carpino (pic n°5), an old village located 30 kilometers north of San Giovanni Rotondo and mainly known for its production of oil and beans. Its territory is a protected area, called Riserva Naturale Ischitella e Carpino (pic n°6), inhabited by deer, wildcats, dormice, weasels, badgers, foxes, hares, wild boars, and various species of birds.
A not-to-be-missed place of this reserve is the beech wood called Coppa delle Rose (pic n°6), considered one of the most interesting forests of Gargano. Thanks to a special microclimate, the beeches of this forest are huge and grow at a lower altitude than the average.
