WILD LUCANIA – Italy

This wonderful reserve is located in the very heart of Appennino Lucano-Val d’Agri-Lagonegrese National Park, a large protected area situated in Basilicata, Southern Italy.

A still uncontaminated land, where to find wild rivers, ideal habitat for Otter, and the Raparo mountains, where Apennine Wolf is present. At only a few kilometres from the reserve lies the evocative landscape of Aliano’s “calanchi” (barren, sandy soiled, rocky hills), which can be easily visited. In less than an hour driving it’s possible to reach the wonderful town of Matera, European capital of culture 2019, and home to hundreds breeding pairs of Lesser Kestrel; in 40 minutes driving there is the beautiful Ionian seacoast and in an hour the village of Maratea, with its picturesque coastal and mountain landscapes.
