A “safari” in Riserva San Massimo


Yesterday we had the the pleasure to go to visit a beautiful place on the occasion of our friend Roberta’s birthday: she invited us to her estate in the middle of Ticino Valley natural park, Riserva San Massimo.
In this marvellous natural reserve, big as 900 football fields, they grow a high quality Carnaroli Rice and they have many species of flora and fauna. We have been taken around for a visit with a big jeep (I can’t remember the proper name of the truck we used, you can see it in the first photo), having the possibility to ask whatever we wanted to the ranger who came with us and to spot some wild animals as deers and storks.
The ranger shown us the spring of the water they use to grow rice (there were even some funny little frogs there, but they were too fast to take a photo of them) and explained a lot of interesting facts about the rice plantation.
