Roccolo del Sauch is a very ancient system for catching birds. It is a plant construction of beech and pine trees, especially interwoven and pruned in order to create a tunnel with a grassy sward in the middle. When a large number of birds were on the sward in the middle of the tunnel, a scarecrow was waved from the hut, preceded by the bird catcher’s whistle. The birds fled horizontally, straight into an almost invisible net stretched between the arches of the tunnel.

Bird catching has been forbidden since 1968 and the centre was used for several years as an observatory and a didactic environmental centre.

Guided tours are possible upon reservation.
