Gabbara ore Reserve

Area protetta dal 1992, “Gabbara” è una zona boschiva, un percorso dedicato agli amanti dell'archeologia industriale, della geologia e della flora e fauna.

Gabbara area was a property of prince Galletti. Originally the area was cultivated, but at the beginning of the 19th century the sulphur mining activity began and several mouths were opened. Mines were closed in 1960s. The mining activity marked the economy and the society of that time.

What remains today is a woody area and a theme itinerary among ancient furnaces and winzes. From a naturalistic perspective the area is relevant for the eucalyptus wood. The trees were planted during 1950s and 1960s.
