NATURE - Parks and Reserves

(Natural Apulian Reserve)

The reserve lies between the areas of Brindisi and San Pietro Vernotico, about 18 km south from Brindisi, and it represents the last part left of Maquis-wood that once covered the major part of the coast land.
The important wood area that covers about 126 hectares, of narrow and long shape, develops along a natural channel named “Li Siedi”, rich of secondary branches.

Notable is the presence of Oaks (Quercus virgiliana), together with Holm Oaks (Quercus Ilex), Elms (Ulmus) and Hop Hornbeams (Ostrya carpinifolia), a rare specie in this territory.
About fauna, there is the European Tree Frog (Hyla intermedia) and some reptiles like the Four-lined snake (Elaphe quatuorlineata) and the Leopard Snake (Elaphe situla).
