From the Park of the Orobie Valtellinesi to the nature reserves of the Bosco dei Bordighi and the Piramidi di Postalesio
Not far from the Parco
Regionale delle Orobie Valtellinesi, the area surrounding Sondrio is home to
two major nature reserves.
Founded in 1994, the Bosco dei Bordighi, reserve spans approximately 50 hectares along the banks of the Adda river, just outside Sondrio. It is one of the few patches of riparian forest left along the alluvial plains of the Adda river.
The Piramidi di Postalesio, or Pyramids of Postalesio, are extremely unusual and very intriguing. This phenomenon is of great interest both from the perspective of the flora and fauna and with respect to the landscape itself, since it only occurs in conjunction with a unique series of geological, environmental and climatic factors.
