Montemarcello-Magra Park

Montemarcello-Magra Park

Last kilometers before the border between Liguria and Tuscany, 16 municipalities, two valleys, sea and coast. A great variety of natural environments: marine, such as Punta Corvo beach; fluvial, with the rivers Magra and Vara; historic villages such as Santo Stefano Magra; and seaside villages such as Tellaro, Lerici and Montemarcello. These are just some of the characteristics of this Regional Natural Parksituated on the extreme east of Liguria. If you love nature, it is difficult to miss the area because of its naturalistic, historical and cultural value, as well as the Promontory of Caprione. Follow the Magra river route, from Bocca di Magra to the Vara valley to meet a thousand different botanical species, a rich and diverse fauna and often contrasting landscapes, all within a short distance. This park was loved by Cesare Pavese, Giulio Einaudi, Eugenio Montale and Vittorio Sereni.

The Park oases

The natural heritage and biodiversity of this Park are represented by numerous species of fauna and flora, such as Kingfisherman, Heron and Aleppo Pine Groves, the only example in Italy. Visit these wildlife oases and the Arcola Oasis, a Special Conservation Area, and let yourself be guided by the sea of trails to travel by foot or by bike to discover a passion for different activities such as birdwatching.

The park has activated the 'Adopt a Path' initiative, a form of cooperation between Park Authority and inhabitants, aimed at the concrete maintenance and enhancement of the hiking trails.
