This rugged yet beautiful mountain chain of the Monti Sibillini reaches its peak at Mt. Vettore, 2,476 metres above sea level in the heart of Le Marche region. It is a territory of sublime nature, history and ancient culture.
The park stretches over 70,000 hectares and is regarded as a 'park for everybody', not least for the wolves, golden eagles, peregrine falcons who live comfortably with hikers, visitors and those still making a living from the mountain.
The abbeys, medieval historical centers and open tracts were all once the mythical Kingdom of Sibilla, and something still hangs in the air if you let your imagination wander.
'Sibilla' was the mythical queen of an underground paradise of limitless delights accessible only by a mythical cavern near the summit of the Monte Sibilla at 2175 meters. Also according to local folklore the mountains also hide the burial site of Pontius Pilate.
In 1993 the Monti Sibillini National Park or Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini was born to save this unique environment.
