A well preserved area that serves to keep intact the beach and pine forest and marshes around it as well as surrounded by hills. The park stretches for about 50 miles- and has many trails throughout. We tried to reach one tower that looked far away, and it really was. After 2+ hours of walking, on the sandy beach, we turned around. The park is very well preserved and been under protection as a park for many decades. The park was actually a focal point in strife and wars and takeovers since 1221. It was a swampy area and stayed that way until Mussolini era when he cleared much of the land to develop in region into crop growing. The park remained as testament to nature. It is remote is in some areas, and you really could get lost or hurt out there without any help. Registry is lacking.
