North of the town, there are the ex-rice paddies of Bentivoglio and San Pietro in Casale, an area which, over the course of the centuries, has undergone radical changes: from swamps to paddies to more intensive cultivation and finally to the current return of the water, since the nineties.

Today the Bentivoglio Reserve - “La Rizza” ex-rice paddies are home to rich and varied fauna, birds in particular, allowing visitors to see and feel the fascination of landscapes which were once characteristic of so much of the Bolognese plain.

After centuries of absence, White Storks have come back to nest in the Reserve.

 

For visitors, parts of the area are equipped with trails, which can be followed both on foot and by bicycle, and observation hides organized by the “La Rizza” multifunctional Centre.

 

There is also a pretty restaurant, open on weekends; nearby is a youth hostal with 8 rooms and a meeting area, a former country house that has been recently restored.
