The Regional Park of Bracciano and Martignano covers around 15,000ha, and includes the two lakes of the Sabatino basin. The lakes are located in a vast and relatively uncontaminated area north of Rome which originated in the lower Paleolithic period. As volcanic activity slowed down in the upper Paleolithic era, several lake basins formed. Aside from the abundant local acquatic flora and fauna, the forests surrounding the lakes are home to oak, ash, chestnut, a variety of mammals and reptiles and are nesting sites for birds of prey.
