The Garden of the Gods - listed among the most beautiful places in the world - extends along the Serradi Crispo peak (2054 m) and is home to the towering secular Loricati pines. Being the symbol of the National Park, those trees are a unique species, the key element of a magnificent landscape made up of breathtaking views that make the place one of the wildest and most uncontaminated places in the Basilicata region. You are going to start the hike from the Sanctuary of Madonna del Pollino, immersed in the beech wood, and reach Piani di Jannace by crossing the homonymous valley. Continuing towards the Garden of the Gods and passing by the Pitt'Accurc' spring you will finally reach the peak.
