PIALASSA DELLA BAIONA is one of the precious elements of the water natural heritage of Ravenna.
It is a body of brackish water located north of the Candiano Canal. Along with Pialassa dei Piomboni on the opposite side of the canal, it began to form from a Renaissance inlet between the Primaro river’s mouth and the ancient Montone river’s one near Punta Marina Terme.
The geological history of these lagoon areas is closely intertwined with human intervention, especially with regards to the regulation of watercourses and the construction of Ravenna’s canal harbour.
The gradual changes in the circulation of waters and in the supply of freshwater within the Pialasse influenced today’s environmental characteristics and formed a particular habitat that makes Pialassa della Baiona an enchanting natural landscape.
