Pialassa della Baiona is situated 10 km north of Ravenna. It comprises around 1100 hectares of wetlands connected to the Adriatic Sea.
This haven for sea- water wildlife made of lagoons, sea arms, artificial water canals and embankments, gets completely covered by sea water with the arrival of the high tide. Its embankments, rich with vegetation, are the main nutrition area for some of the nesting birds who inhabit it. The River banks display typical fishing lodges (called “bilancioni” or “padelloni”) which illustrate part of our history and our present: Giuseppe Garibaldi, when escaping from Rome, stayed in fact in one of these lodges, nowadays open to the public.
