from “La Barca” location, near Alberese
Along the banks, cormorants can be seen on dry eucalyptus plants which had been planted during the reclamation of the marshes. At Trappola Tower, around three kilometers away from the sea, the river gets bigger, its banks become lower and the typical riparious vegetation changes completely. Poplars and willows are replaced by bushes of lentiscus and tamarisk. The land is mainly covered with salicornia, almost completely submersed in winter and dry in summer, which are used by maremman cattle to graze freely. Reeds and tamarisks, which cover the banks, can be seen by getting nearer and nearer to the sea.
