The altitude ranges from – 1 to +3 m m.

At one time, the wood, being surrounded by marshes, was frequented by numerous bird species typical of the wetlands; the drastic reduction in fauna, caused by the drainage works, has been halted by the creation of a wetland area inside the wood, called Elciola, generally closed to the public, where duck species and herons find sanctuary.

The Delta region is a lonely and mysterious land of legends, traditions and swamps.
