“Boschi Vetusti della Val Cervara” are located in Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo, along  the Northern slopes of  Schienacavallo Mountain in the muncipality of Villavallelonga (AQ). It is a forest of beech trees with aa surface of 20 hectares, which is considered the oldest of Europe and because of this it was recognised by Unesco “Heritage of Humanity” (it was extended also to all the beech tree woods of Italy, but this is the most ancient of Europe). The beech trees reach 500 years of age: they are giants emerging from lichens and moss. The wood, in which live numerous wild animals, like deers, wolfs, roe deers, marsican bears, boars, has been evaluated by the apark as “Zona A”, which means strict nature reserve:  it is possible only to pass through it and people are not allowed to touch anything. If a tree falls, it is left there, in order to indulge the wood’s natural life cycle. Among the various paths crossing the park, the one indicated “R5” is particularly suitable for who has small children.
