LA RISERVA NATURALE DI TORRE GUACETO

THE MEDITERRANEAN AREA IS A PRICELESS GEM, BECAUSE IT COMBINES HISTORY, NATURE AND DREAM LIKE NO OTHER PLACE IN THE WORLD. SO WE CELEBRATE ITS VALUE AND RICHNESS, THROUGH ANOTHER MAGICAL PLACE: TORRE GUACETO’S NATURAL RESERVE, IN SALENTO (APULIA). THE AREA IS ONE OF MAJOR INTEREST TO THE WWF SINCE THE 70S, AND IT HAS BEEN RECOGNISED AS A MARINE RESERVE SINCE 1991 AND IN 2000 IT OBTAINED THE STATUS OF NATURAL RESERVE.

THE TERRITORY IS CHARACTERISED BY A GREAT VARIETY: THE TRADITIONAL AGRICULTURAL SYSTEM OF THE INNER PART IS OPPOSED BY A VAST NATURAL AREA OF MEDITERRANEAN SCRUB, WHICH GIVES WAY TO TOWERING SAND DUNES BY THE SEA. JUST OVER THE 8-KM – LONG COAST, THERE ARE SOME SMALL WETLANDS, WHICH ARE PARTICULARLY INTERESTING IN TERMS OF WILDLIFE AND FLORAL HABITATS, AS THEY ARE EXTREMELY VITAL AND RICH IN BIODIVERSITY.

SILENT GUARDIAN OF SUCH BEAUTY, THE MASSIVE TOWER OFFERS VISITORS A COOL SHELTER AND THE CHANCE TO JOIN THE GUIDED TOUR. THE MARINE PARK FEATURES ALSO A SAILING CENTRE AND THE NEW SEA TURTLE RECOVERY CENTRE, WHICH OPENED LAST YEAR.
