The Natural Reserve La Valle, with an area of about 1,000 hectares, is a wetland area of great ornithological interest, with shallow waters and extensive reeds, an important stop-over site and breeding area along the flyway from Northeastern Europe to Sub-Saharan Africa.
In winter we find birds from north-eastern Europe including: Coots, Mallards, Pochards, Teals, Grebes and Tufted Ducks.
In Spring the first African migrants arrive and then in the summer they will nest, among them: Reed Warbler, Great Reed Warbler, Red Herons, Squacco Herons, Night Herons, Cattle Egrets, Little Bitterns.
In autumn the reeds are populated by Starlings and Swallows preparing for migration; the Osprey is also easily observed.
Over the years, over 200 different bird species have been registered.

- A visitor center equipped with an educational room
