Inside the “Giganti della Sila” Biogenetic Guided Nature Reserve, also called “Giants of Fallistro”, there are majestic larch poles with trunks that reach two meters in diameter. They are called giants because of their height of 45 meters, enough to be often compared in size to the North American sequoias. These trees are extraordinary for their size other that for their age: 56 larches pines reach 350 years.
