Bandella Oasis

The nature reserve of the hingers and Hell valley  form a protected natural oasis along the bed of the Arno, in a short stretch of about 4.5 kilometers between the dam Levane (Ar) and the bridge Romito (pictured above)

The protected area is rich in biodiversity to be admired in all seasons and also used as a stopover for migrating from some species of birds.

Here you can recognize the various types of vegetation present and with a little ‘luck of the birds as the’ heron , the cormorant , the Flamingo , the ‘ nightingale of the river, the song thrush and many others, but the real king Bandella is the kingfisher , hurtling fast-deep water in search of insects.

The name of the Valley of Hell was given by Foderai, skilled men challenging the dangerous rapids on this stretch of the river on rafts, carrying trunks of trees from the forests of the Casentino to Florence and Pisa.
