Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park

Cannicchio

The Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park, which is the second biggest nature reserve in Italy, represents one of the most important biogeographical complexes in southern Italy.
Its special geographic position gives the territory tremendous variation in mountain scenery that expresses a remarkable diversity and complexity in highland environment.
Magnificent, wild, beech-tree forests (refuge of the wolf), its caves open and mysterious from which clear, fresh waters flow, its streams the kingdom of the rare dipper, with Italy's largest population of otters, rising peaks and mountain drops, observed continuously by falcons, hawks and eagles, that nest on the craggy rock faces.
Perfect abbeys and ancient walls are to be found together with quaint, unchanged villages and old medieval towns in which the inhabitants belonging to the wondrous Cilentan population still dwell in a unique form of complete harmonic balance.

In June 1997 the Advisory Committee on Biosphere Reserves involved in UNESCO's Programme on Man and the Biosphere (MAB) placed the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park in the prestigious World Network of Biosphere Reserves. Since 2nd December, 1998, UNESCO has placed the park on the World Heritage List as a mixed nature site.
The project has been organised with the collaboration of the Official Guides of the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park.

A cradle in the Mediterranean, the Park is one of the few places where the sea meets the mountains, enhancing its extraordinary natural characteristics, its cultural, archaeological and architectural heritage and the lively world of Campanian traditions.
