LA MANDRIA-Italy

In La Mandria Regional Park, history and nature intertwine creating
a perfect combination of emotions and culture.
In XIX Century this was one of King Vittorio Emanuele II’s game reserves. He asked to build a high bundary wall that surrounds this 3000 hectares estate and this allowed to preserve this portion of flat forest that used
to be so properous in all Padana lowlands.
La Mandria is just a few kilometres from Turin, so it is a real
privilege to observe birds of prey, Black Storks, Cranes, Great Egrets,
Curlew and much more species so close to such a big city. Osprey, European pond turtles, Grey herons’ heronry, tufted duck can be seen
close to the inner lakes.
As a former game reserve, this estate hosts many mammals, like
Deer, Doe and Wild Boar.
Several dedicated hides will be built inside the estate and it will
become another photographic destination among Innate reserves.
