Oriented Nature Reserve “dei Caldaren”

The reserve is rich in plant and animal species. In the early 20th century, the area was used to replenish a kiln with clay, by means of a cable car equipped with small containers (“caldaren”). When the extractive activity was suspended, a flourishing vegetation started to grow there. The area covers about 13 hectares and represents a natural habitat for the avifauna. There, you may find many species, such as Grey herons, night herons, egrets, moorhens, weasels, hedgehogs and foxes.

The original building - located further east - has been affected by frequent floods of the river Po that seriously compromised its stability. A new one was built between 1653 and 1670. The church interior has a single nave, with six side chapels. The vault was entirely restored between 1914 and 1915, as well as a large part of the Temple.
