The natural oasis of San Savino

The natural environment of Lake Trasimeno finds one of its most important expressions in the naturalistic Oasis of the Valley, near S.Savino in the municipality of Magione (Perugia). The extensive reed beds and open waters constitute an extremely complex ecosystem: the physical characteristics, the flora and vegetation and the faunal population make this area a complex of exceptional interest at an international level. Just think of the dozens of pairs of great crested grebe, the thousands of coots that stop on the lake every winter, the presence of the purple heron, the egrets, the ospreys that regularly visit these waters during their long migration journeys. Furthermore, the presence of the medieval emissary enriches the visit to this extraordinary and evocative place.
