Hygrophilous environment and historical architectures

Situated in the territory of San Giuliano Terme the Protected Area is provided with a guesthouse (with 10 beds). The area is characterized by a valley rich in water courses, by the presence of the capture structures of the Aqueduct pertaining to the Medici family (such as the so-called "Cisternone") which in times past provided Pisa with water, and by the remains of the ancient village of Mirteto. Hygrophilous plants, such as the bay laurel and the old world royal fern, are the typical vegetation in this area.
It is possible to visit the Protected Area through the Multimedia Museum at the Center for Information and Documentation of Protected Areas in San Giuliano Terme Station.
