Description

The Calanques National Park was established in 2012. The park is located in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, very close to Marseille. The Pyrenees National Park consists of a terrestrial part (about 8,500 ha) and a marine part (about 43,500 ha) forming the heart of the park. While the heart of the park is strictly protected by law, the area of adherence (2,630 ha) to the more flexible regulations benefits from economic, social and cultural investments which aim to preserve the heart of the park by curbing the rural exodus while promoting tourism in the region. Its landscapes consist of cliffs and limestone rocks overlooking the sea. The rich fauna of the park includes many species of birds and fish but also reptiles, amphibians and some small mammals. Regarding the flora, the Calanques National Park has 900 plant species.
