Beaches, Woodlands, and Gravelly Shores near Chivasso

Where in Italy Riserva Naturale Speciale della Confluenza dell'Orco e del Malone
The streams Orco and Malone flow into the river Po between Brandizzo and Chivasso. Their crystal-clear waters directly come from the Alps of the Canavese area. The water supply of Orco and Malone into the river Po is considerable both in quantity and quality, since it is relatively little polluted. The reserve covers an area of 302 hectares consisting of large gravelly shores, beaches, areas covered with shrub maquis and others with natural wood. The woods are dominated by Locust tree, English Oak, Goat Willow, and Black Alder, housing several species of nesting and wintering birds. Near the road bridge over Orco, in Chivasso, there is one of the busiest fluvial beaches of Piedmont. This area will be soon provided with cycling and pedestrian routes and infrastructures for kayak.
