The reserve is characterized by white limestone cliffs overlooking the sea

Established in 1996, the Duino Cliffs Reserve covers 107 hectares in a restricted area where it is possible to observe the transition from the average European to the Mediterranean biogeographical domain, with a high degree of biodiversity; the typical flora of this area includes black pines, holm oaks, hornbeams, canine cherry trees and kartschian Centaurea, an endemic plant with pink-purple flowers. The fauna is composed of reptiles (lizards, vipers and snakes), solitary sparrow, gull, peregrine falcon and raven.

Currently there is no visitor center and admission to the reserve is free.
