Bosco Quarto lies in the area between Monte Sant’Angelo, San Giovanni Rotondo and Carpino, with its 8000 hectares, it is considered the green lung of Puglia, together with the Umbra forest.
At first it was called the Wood of Manfredonia, but after the territorial division of the woods, it has been given the name it has got today.
Bosco Quarto is the ideal place for the lovers of nature and for taking photos, because of the variety of animals and plants characteristic of Gargano. Among the so many species of trees, besides that of beech trees, the specie that prevails is that of the Turkey oak, with a significant presence of huge Turkey oaks, boasting amazing trunks.
Within the wood it is possible to walk or to ride along the dirt little roads leading to picnic areas, and among other things it is still possible to see the old track of an old decauville railway dating back to 1900, used to transport the wood, which by the help of cableways, reached Manfredonia.
