The olive groves

The olive groves are on the edge of the Gravina, thus benefiting from the favourable climate conditions and from the biodiversity that characterizes it. They extend over a hilly area at an altitude ranging from 90 to 350 m a.s.l. and characterized by red soil on limestone rocks dating back to the Cretaceous period. For its particular morphology, there is an uncontaminated area where many animals and plants can find refuge. From the olive groves it is possible to see many species of wild fauna such as peregrine falcons, lesser kestrels, wild boars, martens and foxes as well as wild plants such as holms, oaks, Macedonian oaks, wild olives and phyllireas.
