Oasi Fluviale del Molino Grande
Nestled in the peace and quiet of the Parco Regionale dei Gessi e Calanchi dell'Abbadessa, the Oasi Fluviale del Molino Grande is a natural area in San Lazzaro di Savena where you can walk in nature and relax mere steps from the city.
The river oasis was created by the Bologna chapter of the WWF. Walking down a winding path in the midst of lush vegetation, you can follow a stream until it flows into a small lake.
The oasis is important because it protects a stretch of the riparian forest along the Idice stream, and it is especially interesting due to its monumental stands of trees and as a nesting site for rare bird species.
