Woodwardia radicans

A path without a doubt for nature lovers. Near Tropea is Brattirò, a hamlet of Drapia, whose origins seem to date back to the Byzantine era, a time when the inhabitants seem to have lived in mud and straw houses, clay houses or in “breste”, typical traditional Vibonese architecture. It was also a farmhouse in Tropea, and is currently one of the few posts where you can find the Woodwardia Radicans, an ancient prehistoric fern, registered as a threatened species in the IUCN Red List (Red List of Mediterranein Aquatic Plants, 2014).

Along the way you can meet centuries-old olive trees, as well as a series of other plants belonging to the Mediterranean scrub. Surely this is something to see if you are passing through Tropea.
