Askos Stone Park
Welcome to Askos Stone Park!
Askos Stone Park is the place where 170.000 self -sown plants (bushes and trees) grow, exactly as placed by Mother Mature.
Hundreds of animals also occupy the same area, living free in their natural habitats. There are wild hawks of many species, many representative mammals of the island, many species of birds, amphibians, insects and other native animals.
The park’s area contains several stone structures, like old stables, basins cut into the rock for water collection that date back many centuries and a lot of constructions using stone and wood, in harmony with the natural environment.
Scientific research organisations (e.g. farming schools) are welcome to the Park for every kind of scientific research, for which they may use the Park’s premises or the surrounding area throughout the year.
