Venafro, ancient heart of Mediterranean olive cultivation
Regional Agricultural Historical Olive Park of Venafro is the first protected area devoted to olive, it is one of a kind in the Mediterranean. Its institution aims to promote and preserve traditional olive cultivation that had magnificence and splendor in Venafro, so that Romans believed that olive oil produced in Venafro was the most finest in the ancient world. No other place in the world, cultivated with olive trees, indeed, can boast such traditions and literary quotations. The Park is also an opportunity for redemption for one area that has suffered from neglect and abandonment in recent decades, in spite of its natural and historical landscape qualities.
