Photo and description
The Adda Sud Natural Park stretches along the lower reaches of the Adda River between Rivolta d'Adda in the north and Castelnuovo Bocca d'Adda in the south in the Italian region of Lombardy. The park has cultivated fields, forests, poplar groves, wetlands and floodplain lakes, which are notable for their avifauna. In particular, the townships of Adda Morta and Zerbalia are known as large heron nesting sites. The park's vegetation is represented by poplars, white acacia, mulberry trees left over from sericulture of the 19th century, plane trees, Chinese ash trees, as well as oaks, willows, elms and maples. Ferrets, dormouse ilani live in the forests of the park.
The historical and architectural heritage of "Adda Sud" deserves special attention. There are several medieval monasteries in the park, and many of the farmhouses typical of the Lodi - Crema - Cremona region. Chapels were often built next to such estates, some of which have survived to this day. Finally, there are also ancient castles, for example, Castello Borromeo, built in the 15th century on the ruins of an older defensive structure. A tower rises in front of the brick building, which is separated from the complex by an inner courtyard. Another noteworthy building is the McCastorn Fortress, which was founded in 1250 during the bloody feuds between the Guelphs and the Ghibellines. On the left bank of the Adda River stands the beautiful Abbey Cerreto church, and in Rossate, on the territory of a farmhouse, you can see the San Biagio chapel with a beautiful crucifix and an old fresco. The temple of Madonna della Costa is also worth a visit. built in 1872 on the site of an ancient church, and Villa Stanga with the Grotta d'Adda cave.
