Fallistro Giants

Magical forest

The Area of Fallistro is one of the most famous spots of the Sila Grande. It has a surface area of 6.5150 hectares, closed in a perimeter of 1,2 km. Fallistro forest stands between 1398 and 1418 meters above sea level.

The Giganti di Fallistro area is characterized by a vegetation where century pine larch trees dominate over willow trees, beach trees and oak trees. The most relevant studies conducted over this area estimate that the origin of this forest could date back to the years 1620-1650, when the owner of the property decided to build homes for a summer resort and also build a spinning mill. Therefore the property of the Fallistro area decided to adorn and protect the homes by planting lanes of oak trees and implanting pine trees throughout the territory in order to erect shelter as soon as the vegetation of the forest would allow it.
