An Imposing Relief in the Alluvial Plain

The Rocca is an imposing relief rising isolated in the alluvial plain formed between the river Po and the stream Pellice, and represents a "summit" of the Dora-Maira geological massif. The hill is covered for the 80% by woodland, for the 15% by agricultural fields while the 5% is formed by rocky and uncultivated areas. The vegetation is mainly represented by woods, sometimes coppice or long-trunk chestnut trees. The fauna is typical of the Po plain areas; the presence of micro-mammals (squirrel, dormouse, porcupine, field mouse, etc.) is very interesting. The avifauna is of great interest, since the Rocca is the only area covered with woods within 7-8 km, and, thanks to its isolated position, it is a reference point for the birds of passage.
