! For our Comenius Project we want to show you some pictures of three of our natural beauties. Manduria is located in an agricultural area but it is also a tourist place for its environmental attractions. As natural beauties we have chosen: the sea, the Mediterranean Macchia and the majestic olive trees. We are really proud of them so..... Enjoy them!
Let’s start from the sea with its marvellous crystal waters
Along the coast you find “Salina Monaci” which has anthropic origins. Till some years ago it was a neglected area of no interest but now it has been rediscovered and is a treasure of inestimable natural value..
Salina is the result of a natural depression in the ground and in the past it was used for the production of salt
When you are there you can still smell the salty scent brought by the wind and you can come into contact with the unpolluted nature..
In this natural habitat we can find very beautiful birds such as swans, flamingos,wild ducks and mallards
The river Chidro is a karstic river situated at about 5 km far from the Salina Monaci and it is the most important stream in all the Ionic Apulian coast.
The Chidro has acquired economic importance over the centuries and it is known as a place for fishing and water supply..
The Chidro is a part of the naturalistic oasis with its biodiversity and migratory birds
Now, enjoy yourselves with the “Mediterranean Macchia “ Another natural beauty of our territory is the “Mediterranean Macchia “ for its richness in vegetation and wild plants.
You can find : Prickly juniper. It grows very slowly: only one cm. a year. Such a big plant as in the pictures below means that it is centuries years old, just like olive trees.
The myrtle trees. Their leaves exhale a good smell. Myrtle is also used to make jams and liqueurs.
And now… The the majestic olive trees Our town is an agricultural centre with large stretches of flat land which provide the ideal conditions for large scale agriculture of olive groves and vineyards.
Olive trees are natural sculptures made by the wind and the sun They are trees very rich in leaves and fruit and provide a good quality of oil which is a staple food in Apulia and our country
The olive tree in the picture is a century-old tree. It is unique and has an ancient twisted trunk.
We hope you have liked our beauties and…… see you soon!!!!!
