What you'll do

The experience program includes an excursion on the sulfur waters of the Lavino. The meeting point will be at the parking lot above the park.From the meeting point the excursion / walk will begin which will take place along the path of the Park, through the splendid and multi-chromatic sulphurous lakes, overlooking the Lavino River, trying to explain the nature of the contact with the sulphurous chalky formation, purchasing the wonderful colors of purple turquoise. The visit unwinds from the ponds inside the Park, giving a glimpse of the banks of the river, of the geological deposits emerging, of visible forms. The path ends at the old Mulino, in the past it was the site of a small hydroelectric power station that supplied green energy to the nearby Scafa cement plant. From the old mill you will come back following the cycle path and go up to the parking lot (initial incotro point).

Matteo

Hi everyone, I'm Matteo Mirabilio, geologist, graduated with honors from the University of Bologna, with a passion for outdoor and hiking. I wish I could combine my professional skills with the desire to make the geological-naturalistic beauties of the Abruzzo Region known. On this excursion along the sulfur waters of the Lavino, we will discover the magic of the colors that these waters can give to a semi-anthropised landscape, a small unspoilt corner; we will discover the reason for these colors by explaining the rocks that contaminate them (starting from 5 Ma from years ago until today), the use of this resource in the past and why it is important to protect it. He hoped he could do it with humility and a touch of irony.

Where you'll be

The excursion will take place within the protected natural area. The park takes its name from the Lavino river, whose sulphurous waters are of a wonderful color between blue and turquoise. The Lavino river originates from the Vallone di Santo Spirito, the northern area of the Majella mountain massif and, after having passed Scafa, it is thrown into the waters of the Pescara river. It is a suggestive complex, a palette of colors thanks to the ponds.
