Parco Naturale Regionale Campo dei Fiori
All’interno del Parco, i numerosi sentieri di breve e lunga percorrenza con dislivello più o meno pronunciato, rappresentano un punto di riferimento per gli appassionati di sport e outdoor.
Located a few kilometers north of the city of Varese, the Campo dei Fiori Regional Natural Park was established in 1984 and expanded in 2009. It covers about 6,300 hectares in the territory of 17 municipalities and 2 Mountain Communities of the Province, remaining entirely within its borders.
Brinzio, a town whose territory is completely within the protected area, is home to the headquarters of the Park Management Authority, which is easily visited through the 21 main paths, properly marked.
To act as a magnet for tourists and enthusiasts, are the two mountain massifs of Campo dei Fiori and Martica-Chiusarella, the six reserves and the eight natural monuments enclosed in the area. In the Park there is a great variety of environments, from lean meadows to chestnut forests, from open areas to wetlands and beech woods.
Within the Park, the many short and long-distance paths with more or less pronounced elevation gain, represent a reference point for sports and outdoor enthusiasts.
The Park has many nature reserves, each with its own characteristics, its own flora and fauna. The geographical extent of the Park means that there is an important diversification and great wealth of natural heritage.
Of great importance is also the rich cultural, historical and artistic heritage of the territory. There are many places of interest to visit that make the experience in the Park full of historical and artistic ideas. The renowned village of Santa Maria del Monte, where the homonymous Sanctuary, home to the fifteenth chapel of the Sacro Monte of Varese, is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, is often of landscape value.
