N. 3 Parks and villages: The National Park of Circeo, a mosaic of nature and history


It’s never easy to describe a place and you know that images often say more than words. It’s even more difficult to describe the National Park of Circeo since even the most beautiful photographs can’t convey the whole history, the mythology and the literature that is hidden behind this coastline in the province of Latina in Lazio. Let’s start with saying that this park is really unique, it was set in 1934 and it was the first park to include an island in its protected area in 1979 thus preventing the old forest of Terracina that was stretched up to Cisterna from being completely deforested. One of the consequences of this wise choice was the decision to start a deep clean-up of the of the Agro Pontino area in the 1930s. Although its reduced dimensions, around 9.000 hectares, the Park of Circeo includes some extremely beautiful places that are featured by different types of environment. Let’s discover them together.
