Local typical products

Such a beautiful territory could not be poor in unique and intense tastes.

Therefore, here you will find both natural beauties and quality products: the Park territory, combining its natural richness with human skills, has led to the creation of unique and matchless agri-foodstuffs, known and appreciated all over the world.

Besides these famous products, the territory also boasts further precious local products and an authentic gastronomic tradition, both based on the most genuine local "ingredients" (berries, herbs, potatoes, mushrooms, chestnuts, game...).
