Its territory spreads over Piedmont and adjacent Aosta Valley and it was the first National Park established in Italy.
Actually this area was regarded as a protected park even before the unification of Italy, as it was declared a natural reserve by King Vittorio Emanuele II to preserve the Steinbok (Ibex) from extinction. This elegant animal, kin to the goat, is the symbol of this park.
Majestic mountains, highest peak is Gran Paradiso at 4,061 m asl.
