"Between Gran Sasso & Maiella"

This reserve is between Gran Sasso and Maiella, and occupies an area of 150 hectares (370 acres) in the Penne area. It is managed by the Cogecstre cooperative and the WWF, among others. The lake is artificial, stemming from the Tavo River, but is nonetheless a true oasis of nature. It is home to such rare species as the field maple and the black birch. Herons can be observed from here, as well as the symbol of the reserve - a splendid great white egret. There is a museum here that holds a diorama representing the environment here in the 1950s. Under the water is green algae as well as fish. Hedgehogs, moles, foxes, badgers, weasels and stone martens also can be seen. Call ahead for timings.
