Roccolo del Sauch

The Roccolo del Sauch, in the Cembra Valley, is an ancient system for catching birds. It consists of a plant construction of beech and fir trees, properly intertwined and pruned, so as to create a practicable gallery with a grassy clearing in the centre. After a large number of birds had alighted in the space in the centre of the tunnel, the bogeyman's whistle would be blown from the hut. The horizontal flight led the birds straight towards an almost invisible net stretched between the arches of the tunnel.

Since 1968 this hunting tool has been banned and the site, owned by the Brugnara family, has been an observatory and environmental education centre for many years. Today it is visible to all those who walk the trails in the area.
