The Pinewood of Cervia - Milano Marittima

The Pinewood of Cervia - Milano Marittima

In the past, Cervia and Milano Marittima's pinewood was the southern layer of the vast and peculiar forestry complex which, almost without interruptions, covered the entire area between the southern part of the Reno river and Cervia.

This wood has been classified as site of Community importance. It's part of the Delta del Po Regional Park and it is, to all interests and purposes, the green lung of Cervia, thanks to its 210-hectare extension.
The major part of the pinewood had been lost during the first half of the XX century, due to strong agricultural policies and as a consequence after the two World Wars.
Fortunately, the awareness of the local government, during the postwar period, allowed the fulfillment of a reafforestation program and the creation of the Natural Park.

How to fully enjoy the pinewood

Nowadays, the pinewood is an important heritage of naturalistic interest thanks to its highly varied ecosystem and it has become a destination of excellence in the ecotourism field.
The thick web made of paths and ways allows tourist to walk across a relaxing environment and to take part in several activities in this uncontaminated place.
Nature lovers will find a naturalistic path equipped with explanatory notice boards and an educational room in the open air.
