Pisa: nature-Body

San Rossore Park was founded in 1979. It is composed of different estates, as Migliarino, Coltano and Tombolo, that extend on a surface of 23.114 hectares.

Since it is only a few km away from the town, it represents its inexhaustible green lungs and it is rich in attractions that have got a great landscape, environmental and naturalistic value.

Inside th park there are many things to see: large pinewoods, mesophyll oak forests, ash trees, elms and alders, where you can also find the very rare liana (Periploca graeca).

Moreover, many deers and wild boares live in these woods, together with bee-eaters, that nest in the sand in July, and little egrets too. The territory of the park presents also some swamps next to the drainage ditches, where you can find the strange presence of some historical buildings in Piedmontese style, that had been built by the Savoia family.

Finally, a special train has been working in the park for a few months, to allow people to do the longest and most complete visit in the park (about 30 Km).
