In the spreading wooded areas and moorlands the natural vegetation is separated in the following categories:

In the high tree vegetation, where the dominant species is the pine tree, forming dense woods with a great water and aesthetic value, which contributes significantly in the preservation of the touristic flows in the area.

In low bushy vegetation, where you can find holly oak, arbutus, holm oak, heather and other species of evergreen-longleaf plants.

In annual or perennial plants, which grow in moorlands and in agricultural areas.

In the end the olive and the vineyard which cover significant areas of land near inhabited areas shape and complete the aesthetics of the landscape.
