Park of the Apuan Alps

The Fortress of Mont'Alfonso and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana represent a point of access to the Regional Park of the Apuan Alps, a mountain range that stretches for about thirty kilometres parallel to the Tyrrhenian coast between the provinces of Lucca and Massa Carrara.
Among the dense woods that surround it, passing by the vegetation of the Mediterranean basin to the chestnut and beech forests of higher elevations, stand the imposing marble walls and we can also find major events of underground rivers such us the famous Wind Cave in Fornovolasco, the cave of Equi Terme in Lunigiana and the Cavern of Corchia of Levigliani.
A varied ecosystem, which is also repeated in fauna, in which the Red-Billed chough is the symbol of the park where snow voles, golden eagles, red grouse and Crag Martin, many amphibians and invertebrates live free.
Throughout the year, the possibilities for hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking are also various thanks to the support of the Park Visit Centres and of Orientation Points open to the public.
