San Daniele Biotope

  • Trail Conditions: On foot
  • Interest: Flora
  • Departure: Loc. Lago Verde

A LIFE Natura site - which falls within the habitat category of 'Natural eutrophic lakes with Magnopotamion or Hydrocharition-type vegetation' - the San Daniele biotope takes its name from the nearby hill and is a typical example of marshland of enormous natural importance. It is located in an area that is partly set up for game fishing, also known as Lago Verde di Torreglia, and consists of several artificial ponds, the remains of a network of lagoons left behind by clay quarrying activities associated with brick production. The ponds have different depths; some are waterlogged all year round, while others partially dry up during the summer months. They are part of a water collection network connected to two canals: Rio Calcina, produced from the springs of Mount Rua, and Scolo Rialto.
