Situated in the inland of Tigullio area, Aveto Natural Regional Park protects one of the most beautiful and important areas of the Ligurian Apennines.

The protected territory, over 30 square kilometres (12 sq mi), includes three valleys, each with its particular features:

  • high-mountain landscapes, grazing lands and large beech tree woods in Aveto Valley (Rezzoaglio, Santo Stefano d'Aveto);
  • meadows where cattle graze, chestnut tree and hazelnut tree woods, vegetable gardens and olive groves in Sturla Valley;
  • a well-preserved rural landscape with olive groves and vineyards, a great variety of rocks and minerals and therefore quarries and mines in Graveglia Valley.
