The reef looks like a rugged rocky platform <a class="colorbox-load" href="/sites/default/files/images/borrona.jpg" title="Photo of the coast between Calavinagra and Calafico where nest the Eleonora's falcon">overlooking the sea</a>, up to 130 meters high, carved by deep bays (<a class="colorbox-load" href="/sites/default/files/images/calavinagra.jpg" title="Calavinagra">Cala Vinagra</a> and <a class="colorbox-load" href="/sites/default/files/images/calafico.jpg" title="Calafico">Cala Fico</a>) and intersected by canals that flow into the sea. The rocks, eroded by wind and other atmospheric agents, are characterized by <a class="colorbox-load" href="/sites/default/files/images/mare-piccolo-rocce.jpg" rel="lightbox" title="Photo of a detail of the coast between Cala Vinagra and Cala Fico where it nests Eleonora's falcon">small cavities, recesses and crevices</a> that give the landscape a wild look and charming. The continuous geological and climatic changes of the island has favored the creation of a totally unique environment, characterized by a variety of flora and fauna including many species that are found only on this island, and that led to the classification of the area as <strong>"Area of international interest"</strong>.<br /> Behind the cliff, vegetation is represented by scrubland, characterized by low shrubs, scattered and resistant to wind and marine aerosols, characteristic of the Mediterranean maquis. There are species adapted to extreme environmental conditions, including the marine fennel and two major Sardinian-courses endemics such as the greek Limonio and Seseli Bocconi Father whose intense aroma permeates the reef environment.<br /> Moving from the coast to inland areas you can see the most typical of the Mediterranean species: myrtle, rosemary, the Fillirea, Mastic and brooms that form low and extended coverages. A vibrant touch of color is given by the flowering of two small endemic plants: the <a class="colorbox-load" href="/sites/default/files/images/anagallis_monelli_centonchio.jpg" title="Anagallis Monelli (Centonchio)">Anagallis monelli</a> from vibrant red corolla and Bellium crassifolium, an elegant white daisy. In most inland areas and sheltered from the strong mistral wind, one can observe residual pine forests of pine of Aleppo, that in this island is the most advanced stage of the Mediterranean vegetation.</p> <p>For more information you should visit the <a href="http://www.lipu.it/oasi-di-carloforte-cagliari">official page of OASIS LIPU CARLOFORTE</a></p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-inline clearfix"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" rel="dc:subject"><a href="/en/tags/oasi-lipu" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Oasi LIPU</a></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-addthis field-type-addthis field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"></div></div></div>Wed, 12 Oct 2016 08:09:37 +0000admin269 at https://carloforte.nethttps://carloforte.net/en/island/oasis-lipu-carloforte#commentsThe Coasthttps://carloforte.net/en/island/coast <div class="field field-name-field-image field-type-image field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" rel="og:image rdfs:seeAlso" resource="https://carloforte.net/sites/default/files/articles/cpunta-dei-laggioni.jpg"><a href="https://carloforte.net/sites/default/files/articles/cpunta-dei-laggioni.jpg" title="The coast of the Island of San Pietro" class="colorbox" data-colorbox-gallery="gallery-node-268-SukojKn8pi8" data-cbox-img-attrs="{&quot;title&quot;: &quot;&quot;, &quot;alt&quot;: &quot;The coast of the Island of San Pietro&quot;}"><img typeof="foaf:Image" src="https://carloforte.net/sites/default/files/styles/juicebox_medium/public/articles/cpunta-dei-laggioni.jpg?itok=u_EaKDI9" width="1024" height="299" alt="The coast of the Island of San Pietro" title="" /></a></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-related-news field-type-entityreference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Related topics:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/en/node/122">Carloforte, piccola grande Italia</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/en/node/118">La Conca e la Mezzaluna</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/en/node/119">Giro dell&#039;Isola a Settembre</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/en/node/203">Le grotte dell&#039;isola di San Pietro</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/en/node/128">Vivere il mare sull&#039;Isola di San Pietro</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/en/node/102">Calavinagra</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/en/node/101">Spiaggia La Caletta (Cala dello spalmatore) </a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/en/node/157">Foto su varie località dell&#039;isola</a></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p>The northern and western coast of the island of San Pietro is the most wild and unspoiled.

the only brick buildings were the Castle, The Church and the home of the Duke.<br /> Even today the Ligurian origin of its inhabitants can be seen in urbanism in the country, as can be seen by visiting its old town, starting with the Boatmen waterfront where in addition to the monument dedicated to Carlo Emanuele III, we can admire the old buildings of the eighteenth and nineteenth century who were born during the period when Carloforte expanded beyond the walls.</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-addthis field-type-addthis field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"></div></div></div>Wed, 27 Apr 2016 19:37:18 +0000admin138 at https://carloforte.nethttps://carloforte.net/en/island/historic-centre#comments
