Historic notes. Our old oaks

Faithful witnesses to the passage of time, the old oaks of the Region remain rooted to the dry land that continue to feed them. Some of uncertain origin, others planted in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, all have great historical and cultural value that transports us to another time and beholding, after noticing the marks of time on their branches, give us the feeling of our ephemeral passage through life.
