Snowdonia National Park
Protected UK area, it has  many volcanic mountains that, during the ice age, had undergone great erosion phenomena. The highest peak is the Yr Wydda Fawr (1085 m.), one among  five peaks of Snowdon mountains. The park has forests, lakes, heath land and coastal passages; in the sparse vegetation there are two rare flowers, the Snowdon lily and the Welsh poppy; among the birds we can see the crow, the cormorant, the kestrel and the peregrine falcon; in the same forests there are skunks and martens.
In the XIII century Snowdonia was the theatre of the last armed Welsh resistance against the English invasion and is now a symbol of the Welsh language and culture. In the XIX century it became a centre for mineral extraction, an activity still operating inside the park. Since 1920 the principal activity is forestry. The park has also a hydroelectric power station and a nuclear one (not operating).
