The beauty of the Aspromonte.
surrounded by greenery
among the ancient woods of Calabria
Pietra Cappa is a privileged destination for all hiking lovers. Pietra Cappa is not a real monolith, in the sense that it is not a single block of stone, but an agglomeration of crushed stone and sandstone.
We are located in the eastern area of the province of Reggio Calabria, about twenty km from the Ionian coast, within the Aspromonte National Park. Specifically we are in the Valley of the Great Stones, in the territory of San Luca.
The circular route brings us slowly closer to its presence. And the closer you get, the more you feel small. The peculiarity that makes it unique is being isolated in a world of dense and compact woods, from which it protrudes cleanly and smoothly.
