Places to know and visit
Salinella lake, 3 km far from the center, reachable walking on Viale Ionio towards the Bradano river, crossing the old toll booth on the left. In 1994 it was included on the list of the protected areas and recommended by the Società Botanica Italiana as "place that deserves preservation". It lies where, in the past, there was the Bradano river, thar altered its course after various earthquakes. Surrounded by a wonderful pinewood (pines of Aleppo and Domestico), th 90 hectare lake is the last swamp of the Ionian amphitheater. Its marine fauna is extremely rich and the area is also a shelter for numerous swamp birds such as the herring gull, the linnet, the calandra lark, the moorhen, the reed bunting, the heron.
The Pineta Regina, 400 hectares. The vegetation of this coastal pinewood is characterized by the rich presence of a typical mediterranean conifer, the pine of Aleppo (pinus halepensis), some white poplars and an odoriferous scrub consisting of lentisco, rosemary, alterno, firillea and stingy asparagus. There are also rockrose and juniper bushes. The "colombaccio" builds its nest here and many species of migratory birds can be observed.
Torre Mattoni, brick tower. Situated on the Ionian coast, near the Salinella lake, it owes its name to the cotto tiles used to build it and is among the coastal defensive towers wanted by the Vicerè of the Regno di Napoli in the sixteenth century in order to protect the land from the turkish invaders coming from the sea.
