NATURE - Parks and Reserves

(Site of Community Importance)

Close to the natural reserve of Torre Guaceto, in the territories partly belonging to Brindisi and partly to Carovigno, there is the area known as “Iazzo San Giovanni”, where there is the interesting presence of tree specimens of Mastic (Pistacia lentiscus) and Phillyrea (Phillyrea latifoglia).

The wet area of international interest includes swamps located along the coast line, characterized by Phragmites (Phragmites australis), Juncus (Juncus maritimus) and Great Fen Sedge (Cladium mariscus), good habitat for stops and reproduction of migrating seabirds.
The area, with dunes and Mediterranean Maquis behind, has a great value from the landscape and vegetation point of view, with a coast profile rich of small bays. The rocky ground layer is calcareous.

The area has a great archaeological interest as well.
