Orecchiella park Garfagnana area north of Lucca
Dominated by the broad high plain of Pania di Corfino, a natural reserve since 1980, it owes its good fortune to its natural disposition as an ideal place and perfect habitat for large wildlife, such as various types of deer and moufflon for their repopulation of the territory. An uncontaminated place, within easy access from San Romano in Garfagnana, it is visited by thousands of tourists throughout the year.

the magnificent Orecchiella Natural Park lies half-hour drive from Piazza al Serchio, one of the principal Garfagnino towns. An easy walk from the Visitor Center leads one to the Botanical Garden, which highlights the Orecchiella's floral diversity.

A series of trails heads from here to the summit of Pania al Corfino, a dramatic limestone peak that dominates the Serchio valley.
At over 1600m the Pania is one of the highest peaks in Tuscany, affording climbers with panoramic views of the Serchio river valley and the entire majestic Apuane Alps range.
There are many fine circuit trails around the Pania and elsewhere in the park.

There are typical gastronomic stands offering the simple yet flavourful cuisine of the Garfagnana zone

From the Orecchiella Natural Park to the Apuane National Park there is much to offer on largely uncrowded trails and byways.

The Orecchiella Park has a variety of rare flora, due to the fact that it is something of an alpine island within a warmer region. In addition it boasts an array of special fauna, including royal eagles, royal owls, hawks, deer and more recently introduced rams and wolves.
