The path led us in a ancient beech wood where the trees are keepers of tradition, history and biodiversity. Here we can found the presence of the rare white-backed Woodpecker or the the more mysterious and rare Rosalia longicorn beetle. All this makes the ancient forest of Pescasseroli a very special place.
