Major highlands

It is an area formed by karst plateaus, among which "Quarto del Barone", "Quarto di Santa Chiara" and "Quarto Grande", that is surrounded by high mountains and crossed by a fascinating railway.

Where: they are located in the southern area of the Park, enclosed by Mounts Pizzi, Porrara, Pizzalto and Rotella. You can reach them from Sulmona, Roccaraso, Campo di Giove and Palena.

Curiosity: the winter snowy plateaus are replaced by flooded fields or sometimes by a real temporary lake that, when the good weather comes, is drained by Fosso la Vera, a gorge that suddenly ends in an infiltration basin near the Railway Station of Palena.
