The Aspromonte National Park is located in the province of Reggio Calabria and takes its name from the Aspromonte massif. The park protects the ends of a huge granite-crystalline block occupying the southernmost tip of the peninsula, and was created to protect the environment of the territories of the former section of the Aspromonte National Park of Calabria. It, however, dates back to the Greek populations of the Ionian coast admiring the white mountain formations of the massif. In fact, the term “Aspromonte” could come from the greek and means “Mont Blanc” for the light color of some of its peaks. This continental relief constitutes a rich set of natural and human presences events: rugged mountains covered with thick vegetation, hidden waterfalls, steep valleys, sheer cliffs, canyons, cliffs, small and ancient hilltop villages, including the old village Roghudi, from which you scanned the sea to defend against enemies, and the Sanctuary of Polsi, nestled in the woods, it retains its former glory. This mountain is the realm of the beautiful beech trees, fir and larch pine, and being a wet land and shady, also of the rare Woodwardia radicans, that here survives from the distant ice ages. With regard to fauna, stand out the wolf, the wild cat, the little dropio like dormice, porcupines and martens. It is also the land of the Bonelli’s eagle and of the Egyptian vulture, small increasingly rare vulture.
