Pollino National Park is one of the greatest and newest protected areas in Italy. Amongst the mountains Serra Dolcedorme and Cozzo del Pellegrino, where the horizon loses itself in between Tyrrhenian and Ionian sea, along Pollino and Orsomarso massifs, in between Calabria and Basilicata, mankind and Mother Nature cooperate, to protect a flora and a fauna that have lived there for millennia. That’s the very purpose of Pollino National Park, founded in 1993 to cherish its symbol: Pinus heldreichii, also known as ‘pino loricato’.
