Founded, together with the Gran Sasso-Laga in 1993, it extends for 86,000 hectares in the provinces of Pescara, Chieti, and L'Aquila involving 39 communes. The Majella mountain range is clearly connected with the Morrone mountain. The rounded massif of the Majella is very characteristic. Similar to a magnificent, elliptical dome, it dominates the Abruzzo countryside rising up between the sea and the Apennine range.
The western side, being without valleys, is furrowed by wide screes that push as far as the beechwoods that embellish that side, whereas the eastern side is more rounded.
Apart from the principal peak, Monte Amaro (2,795 m), there are another thirty that go above the 2,000 m. One of these is Monte Acquaviva (2,737 m), and then Cima delle Murelle (2,596 m) and Monte Focalone (2,676 m) with almost dolomitic faces.
At Majella National Park, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, mountain chalets, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
