Oasis of Ca' Mello
The Oasis of Ca' Mello covers a wide area on the Island of Donzella, within the boundaries of the Po Delta Regional Park of Veneto, and is a Site of Community Importance (SCI). Largely covered by fields under crop in the past, this area stands where once was the mouth basin of a now-disappeared, ancient branch of the Po river. A number of environmental redevelopment actions gave birth to the existing oasis, which covers an area of about 150 hectares and hosts a biodiversity-rich ecosystem.
You can take a tour among thick reed beds and water plants that brighten up the summer landscape with the vivid colours of their flowers. This oasis is also the ideal habitat for the reproduction and feeding of different water bird species that you may have the chance of sighting from the bird watching hides scattered throughout the site.
