Pollino Geopark

Pollino Global Geopark is located in Southern Italy. The area of the Pollino chain has always been of great geological interest as a key to scientists’ understanding of the structural relation between the Peloritano-Calabrian Arch and Southern Apennines. The area consists of several massif mountains between the Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas. They rise up to the higher elevations of the Southern Apennines: the Pollino Massif, the Orsomarso mountains and Mount Alpi. The Pollino massif consists of five summits all over 2,000m. The 2,267m high Serra Dolcedorme is the only Italian massif from where it is possible to get a glimpse of three seas: the Ionian, Tyrrhenian and Adriatic seas.
