Discover Sila Italy

Sila is a high plateau in the northern part of Calabria and covers the provinces of Catanzaro, Cosenza, and Crotone. The rural landscapes of the region are interspersed with vast forests of Corsican pine, cedar, beech, and European silver firs. The fields, which are farmed using traditional agricultural methods, illustrate the long and respectful interaction between man and nature in this part of Italy. From the 1928m Botte Donato, the highest summit on the plateau, down to the lower altitudes, animal life has diversified in order to adapt to the different climates and vegetation. Wolves, deer, squirrels, owls, salamanders, and vipers are all hidden away in this area, which has been protected since 1968. Although in the past it was called Calabria National Park, today it goes by the name of Sila National Park.
