The Roccolo del Sauch is an ancient construction built for bird hunting.
The uniqueness of this structure lies in the material it is made of: beech trees and spruces which have been masterfully intertwined and trimmed so as to surround a grassy open space with a natural arcade.
Once the hunter noticed that birds had packed on the grass, he would whistle and frighten them. Flying towards the arcade, birds would get caught in a hardly visible net hung among the columns.
After this hunting technique was banned in 1968, the Roccolo, owned by the Brugnara family, became a destination to increase environmental awareness and an ideal place for bird watching.
Today, the site can be visited by all passers-by. Guided tours available on request.
