Nazioni Lake

It is the result of the hydraulic structures built in what was once the Valle di Volano.
Nazioni Lake

It is a salt water lake that provides extensive mullet and eel fishing and, during summer, it is used for sailing and rowing activities; it extends over a surface of 100 hectares of water and 70 hectares of the adjacent stud farm where wild bulls and Delta horses are bred. The vegetation along the shores comprises marsh cane, rushes, medicinal plants and swamp orchids. The presence of the fauna is linked to the Valle Bertuzzi lagoon nearby: among the most common species we find the little grebe, the mallard, the coot and the kingfisher. The coot, the tufted duck, the great crested grebe and the merganser winter here. At the nearby farm, blackwinged stilts, little egrets and blue herons are numerous. Over the last several years, some cattle egret have arrived, after the recently begun breeding of bulls and horses.
