Description

It is the park of Franciscan memories and of the many hermitages scattered along the Subasio mountain (1,290 m): this is why it has been defined as the mystical park or, also, the Assisi park, as the town represents its privileged access. Assisi and its mountain mutually live in a sort the symbiosis that has been handed down since ancient times and which, over the centuries, has been strengthened and rooted.
The entire historic center of Assisi is included in the park and characterizes its natural and historical-cultural values. The Subasio is an isolated relief with respect to the Apennine chain. Its characteristic rounded shape and the monumental complex of the basilica of Assisi that stretches along its slopes make it easily identifiable in the panorama of the Umbrian plain. Reforested with conifers towards the summit, from Turkey oaks, hornbeams, ash trees, maples and downy oaks at an intermediate level and olive trees in the lower belt. It also opens onto two beautiful beech woods and the holm oak forest of the Eremo delle Carceri.
Among the animals present in the park, we find the wolf, the wild cat, the fox, the lizard, the wild boar, the badger, the weasel, the partridge.
