Pialassa Baiona is a saltwater lagoon that stretches for about 11 km² in the area between the river Lamone and the Candiano channel. It is made up of shallow ponds, divided by levees that create a network of channels ranging from 1 to 4 metres deep. The presence of resident and migratory birds means that the area was included by the Ramsar Convention in the list of wetlands of international importance.
The presence of old fishing huts tells us something about our history and about the present: perhaps one of the most famous episodes was when Giuseppe Garibaldi, escaping through our valleys, found hospitality in a fishing hut which is now open to the public.
The most impressive time of day to visit Piallassa is at sunrise or sunset, and the most fascinating way of visiting the area is to explore all the hidden corners in a canoe.
