LUCANIA. Nature at its purest
With the National Park of Pollino and even more with the National Park of Lucan Apennines Val d'Agri Lagonegro, Basilicata is the Italian region with the largest territory under protection which, considering also the nature reserves and other protected areas, exceed 30% of the entire region.
Maratea is both near to the Pollino National Park, to the Lucano Apennine National Park and to that of Cilento.

Including the National Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano, which geographically belongs to the so-called Great Lucania, it can say that we are in the largest protected area, perhaps of the entire Western Europe, in a semicircle around the Maratea territory that becomes the starting point for interesting and countless excursions.
