Pollino Italy
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Pollino

Pollino National Park sits on the border between Basilicata and Calabria, and covers 32 Calabrian villages in the province of Cosenza. It was created in 1993 and chose the very rare Bosnian pine as its symbol, which grows up the steepest summits of the Pollino mountains. The oldest specimens, which are twisted almost to the point where they resemble works of natural art, can be found in the Serra delle Ciavole and the Serra di Crispo, on the plateaux of Pollino.
