Itineraries Car and motorbike: Parco dell'Orecchiella - Fortezza delle Verrucole

The Orecchiella Natural Reserves are the pride of the new Tosco-Emiliano National Park. A territory with a landscape of rare beauty. Here deer, mouflon, wild boar and wolves and many species of birds, some migratory and others who have found their home in an ideal habitat can be seen. The royal eagle who has always been present on the Pania di Corfino, extends his hunting territory up to the summits of Monte Prato and Monte Vecchio.

The Orecchiella Park Visitor’s Centre with its Natural History Museum, has a projection room and various stands with local products on sale. This Park can be reached from Castelnuovo by following the directions for Villa Collemandina and Corfino. An "easier" pathway reaches the fauna observation areas where you can see deer, mouflon, bears and roe deer. The mountain flower garden with wonderful summer flowers, the botanic garden "Pania di Corfino" will fascinate wildlife lovers.

The itinerary to visit follows the road to S. Romano in Garfagnana, through the villages of Caprignana and Orzaglia, until you arrive at Verrucole, where you can reach the magnificent Fortress, recently restored, by a short walk. Here you can take part in medieval and historical events.
