San Rossore Estate

San Rossore estate (with a surface of 4,800 hectares) is the most significant natural environment within the Park. Its boundaries are situated north of the river Serchio and east of Pisa, south of the river Arno and west of the Ligurian Sea.
The spontaneous vegetation changes depending on the areas: in the tombolos the vegetation is sub-mediterranean with the holm oak forest and pinewood, in the meanders it shows itself as a mesohygrophilic forest made up of deciduous plants typical of the original forests. Along the coast, between the two river mouths, the estate is limited towards the sea by high dunes. Among the animals which can be easily observed there are the fallow deers, the wild boar and several bird species, especially during overwintering and spring migrations.
