Since Neolithic times, forests have been a place of encounter between humans and nature. Perceived in turn as frightful and magical, they have never ceased to inspire tales, myths and legends to the people who lived in and travelled through them. More than being the lungs of the Earth, they are the beating hearts of stories that you know without realising as they are so much part of our societies.

Come and explore the rich and diverse forests of our National Parks. You will discover cultural treasures, archaeological remains, a rich biodiversity and sublime landscapes. Under the treetops, in villages, clearings, ruins and rivers, listen: trees are whispering tales and legends in the wind.
