Among the charming locations in the province of Rovigo, in Veneto, we can't fail to mention the ancient town of Trecenta, already known to the Etruscans and the Romans. These streets have witnessed a great deal of history, with traces that tourists and visitors can still admire today, such as the elegant Church of San Giorgio, a symbol of 18th-century Ferrara Baroque architecture, and Palazzo Pepoli, known as El Palazzon, built on the foundations of a medieval castle.
The area surrounding the town is known as the Gorghi di Trecenta, a complex of wetlands created by repeated flooding in the past and now featuring a particular wealth of lakeland flora and fauna. There are eight small lakes, varying in depth from 3 to 15 meters: the largest is the Bride's Whirlpool, known since the 13th century and linked to the legend of a young girl who loved a poor boy and preferred to take her own life in the waters of the whirlpool rather than marry a wealthy local lord.
Birdwatchers will find the Gorghi di Trecenta a natural paradise where they can admire grey herons, moorhens, mallards and bitterns.
