Regional natural park of Bosco Incoronata
The Regional natural park of Bosco Incoronata is located approximately 12 km south of the city of Foggia.
It is this a habitat of particular interest thanks to the presence of trees such as the cypress, the Judas tree and the wild pear tree. The oak, which is also widespread in the park, is all that remains of the original forests that once covered the entire Tavoliere of Puglia.
The park of Bosco Incoronata is crossed by the river Cervaro that originates in the Daunia Mountains to flow near the town of Manfredonia.
The wildlife in the park is very diverse thanks to the different habitats like rivers, forests and pastures. Among the animals that live in the area there are foxes, woodpeckers, cuckoos, kingfishers, badgers, also reptiles such as the Cervone snake.
