Ischitella and Carpino Forest

  • Ph. Vincenzo Pioggia

Bosco di Ischitella and Carpino (Ischitella and Carpino Forest), surrounded by the green of Gargano National Park, is a nature reserve characterised by several species of trees, in particular holm oaks and beech trees.

These trees are so short, that they are called “faggete depresse”, “depressed  beech trees groves”. At 250 metres above sea level, you can admire lush and impressive beech trees, which grown in a sunny area which needs water, thanks to the particular microclimate and to the fact that it is exposed to winds which give the necessary humidity.

As per animals, the reserve is populated with mammals such as wildcats and roe deer. There are also birds such as birds of prey and woodpeckers.
