The lagoon is a spectacular natural setting in which Grado lies, extending from Fossalon di Grado to the island of Anfora, at the height of the mouth of the Ausa and Corno rivers.

The colours of nature 

The Grado lagoon offers a landscape rich in colours with the green of the luxuriant vegetation and the blue of the Adriatic sea. 
A small fantastic world, immersed in the calm of nature with the intertwining canals and streams, paths of faith of ancient origin as witnessed by the Sanctuary of Mary of the Island of Barbana, one of the most visited in Italy. 

The Grado "casoni" (fishermen's huts) 

An area rich in history in which archaeological finds reveal the ancient Roman road, now completely covered by water, that connected Aquileia to Grado. 
And the presence of the casoni, characteristic housing with straw roofs, takes us back to the time they were inhabited by fishermen. 

The flora and fauna 

The lagoon is an area fertile in trees, in particular, tamarisk, elm, poplar, junipers and pines, whilst the fauna presents a considerable variety of birds such as gulls, grey herons, wild ducks, sea swallows. 

Treasures to be discovered… 

If you are passionate about bird watching, if you love nature or you want to satisfy your curiosity, you can observe the beauty of the flora and fauna of the lagoon in the enchanting protected areas of the River Isonzo Mouth Reserve and the Valle Cavanata Reserve.
