Discover Vegetation Italy

The maquis covers (and perfumes) the north of the island where lavender, thyme and rosemary grow wildly. The region is also home to a large number of cork oaks. This type of tree can be easily recognized by the peeling bark of its trunk, and, depending on the quality of cork removed, the wood is used to produce corks or the soles of shoes.
