  • If you're in Val d'Orcia must devote some of your time to view this majestic oak more than 300 years. Not for nothing is the first green monument in the history of our country, protected because it was considered "of particular public interest".

  • I live near this wonder of nature and every time it's always nice to be able to embrace this tree, although you must be at least three/four adults to do so. To see and respect.
