Saline of Tarquinia

On the Tarquinian coast it’s worth visiting the Natural Reserve of “Saline”, whose tanks of salt water, as well as being a destination for migratory birds, are used for fish farming. The Reserve was established in 1980 using the tanks for salt mining of Papal era. Every first Sunday of the month the Forest Warden opens the internal paths, allowing visitors to walk among the many expanses of water; so you can take photos, according to the periods, of pink flamingos and other rare species, walking around the old salt factory. Every day you can also relax along the road that goes from the Lido to t he ancient village of Saline, a nineteenth-century village that was set of filming such as “Pinocchio” by Comencini.
