Four steps in the Bianello Oasis

The Oasis of Bianello is located immediately behind Quattro Castella and is a wonderful example of the environment of the lower Emilian Apennines, with heights around 300 metres. The Oasis is equipped with a visitor centre with a projection room, information material and services. In order to visit the Oasis it is possible to take two paths: the first, through the oak forest, allows you to get to the Bianello Castle (open to the public, see the timetables!); the second, starting from the visitor centre, leads to the Colle Zagno and Colle Lucio (Zagno Hill and Lucio Hill). During the year various events are organized, such as the release of birds of prey, the observation of marine fossils, the cleaning and installation of nest boxes, and so on.
