Gallorose Park, located in Cecina, is a wildlife centre that is home to 120 species from around the world.

It really is a journey across five continents, where you can meet the African porcupine, lemurs from Madagascar, kangaroos from Australia, the European golden eagle and many other animals.

The route through the park also includes a museum area and its collection of period images, with portraits and snapshots from life in the fields; there are also old toys from the beginning of the 20th century and traditional farm machinery, like a plough and a threshing machine.
