Travel and Culture in
Friuli Venezia Giulia
If you love nature and you wish to plunge into the beauties of the high mountains, the National Park of Tarvisio is very important for its richness and its size. It is characterized by thick woods of spruces (Pixea excelsa), of beeches (Fagus sylvatica “atropurpurea”) and of pines (Pinus sylvestris).
Moreover, the fauna of the park is particularly rich, since it is characterized by the presence of deers (Cervus elaphus), ibexis (Capra ibex), roe deers (Capreolus capreolus) and chamoises (Rupicapra rupicapra).
There are also some other important animals, as the golden eagle (Aquila Chrysaetos), the griffon vulture (Gyps fulvus fulvus Hablizi), the eagle owl (Bubo bubo) and, in particular, the capercaille (Tetrao urogallus), that has chosen this area as its favourite habitat.
