Lama Bianca

Lama Bianca is a place name that indicates a very steep rocky and white area, due to the colour of the Majella typical stone. The Lama Bianca wood is one of the most important beech wood of timber trees in Abruzzi, where the Marsican brown bear, the wolf and the rare goshawk, a bird of prey that hunts through thick woods, live. In the higher altitudes, in the big Rave (big rocky gorges) you can find wide mugo pine woods and the rocky environments of the high altitudes that reach 2793 m of the Mount Amaro.

Where: it is located on the western slope of Majella, in the Sant’Eufemia a Majella Municipality. Starting from the valley it can be reached through Sant’Eufemia a Majella, while starting from the mount it can be reached through Passo San Leonardo.

Curiosity: in the late 1980’s the first paths accessible to the disabled were built here. They are comfortable paths, accessible also to the wheelchairs, well equipped with rest areas and picnic tables and they reach Fonti della Fratta, Persichillo, Lama Bianca and Zappano.

Read more: on the grasslands of the high altitudes, over 2000 m, between the end of June and the beginning of August, you can find the most beautiful blooms of the massif. Among them there are the Apennine Edelweiss, the matted cushions of silene acaulis, the alpine pasqueflower and the majellense violet. At the end of the road that crosses the Lama Bianca wood, the B5 path rises along the steep Rava del Ferro and reaches the high altitudes.
