4.4
#11 of 22 in Nature in Umbria
The Sibillini Mountains, or Sibylline Mountains are a mountain group in Italy, part of the central Apennines. Situated between eastern Umbria and the Marche, they are mostly composed of limestone rocks, formed in the Mesozoic and Cenozoic on the bottom of an extinct sea. The land emerged 20 million years ago. Most of the peaks are over 2000m; the highest altitude is reached by Monte Vettore at 2476m.Since 1993 the area has been part of the Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini .The current morphology, largely dominated by U-shaped valleys and glacial depressions, is due to the action of glaciers in the Quaternary period. Also regions of Karst topography are in evidence, caused by extension of the crust beneath western Italy and the Tyrrhenian Sea.Legend says that a cave of the Sibyl housed a male prophet who rarely revealed secrets of the future. Necromancers and knights, came from across Europe, after exhausting journeys trying to seize an oracle of Sybil.
