Visitors also shouldn’t miss seeing the Interprovincial Park of Montioni. Spanning over 7,000 hectares, recent studies found a growing wolf population in the park (a surprise to many of the area's residents). The Interprovincial Park of Montioni is full of holm oak trees and caves, not to mention the deer, wild boar and other wild animal species that call this park home.
The town of Sassetta, just a bit further inland, is home to the famous via del carbone, meaning "coal route." This trail pays homage to the old coal workers that once depended on local forests to survive. Here, on May 1st, a town festival celebrates the coal workers and their former way of life. Visitors get a close look at the different phases of the coal-working process, from transporting wood with mules to the preparation of charcoal pits, the wood "baking" and the final product.
