Parco Naturale Regionale di Bracciano Martignano

Overview

A nature reserve in the heart of Lazio

Established in 1999, the Regional Natural Park of Bracciano Martignano covers over 16,000 hectares in an area encompassing the provinces of Rome and Viterbo. The protected area is characterised by a volcanic, typically green and hilly landscape, which contains stretches of water and small villages. 

Lake Bracciano itself is of volcanic origin. Besides being one of the most important water reservoirs in Italy, it still holds a central role in the supply of drinking water for the capital. Motorised vessels cannot be used, but it is great for relaxing on its shores or trying out canoeing, sailing or windsurfing. The park contains hiking trails suitable for all levels. The ancient beech forest, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its biodiversity, is an unmissable stop on your exploration.

In the municipalities of Bracciano, Anguillara Sabazia and Trevignano Romano, you can admire numerous cultural and historical attractions, such as the Orsini Odescalchi Castle, museums with important Etruscan remains, and archaeological sites that date back to the Neolithic period.
