The Boscona Nature Reserve

At the edge of the village of Mirabello there is the entrance to the nature reserve made on the former bed of the river Reno.
The Boscona Nature Reserve

Cultivation has been diversified, using modern systems of management which allow wide space for organic cultivation, alternating with hedges, with mournful lines of poplars, farnia oak, ancient mulberries, and mills that were once used to work hemp.
A rich fauna finds refuge in this countryside: hares, pheasants, wild duck, grey herons and birds of prey can be spotted at all seasons. At the edge of the reserve is the majestic Palazzo Aldrovandi. The agricultural group there produces grapes of excellent quality and a high level of sweetness, used also to make wine.
They also provide horseriding, riding lessons for beginners, and an agriturismo.
