Oriented nature reserve

Frattona Wood is a nature reserve on Imola's hills, not far from the Tozzoni Park. It covers an area of 19 hectares and it still features a variety of trees which covered this hills in ancient times.

Its name comes from the word "fratta" (meaning "thicket").

Created in 1984, it stretches on the right bank of the Rio Correcchio.

The woods rapidly slope towards this stream with a 60-metre vertical descent.

In this area numerous outcrops of the characteristic "yellow sands of Imola" can be seen.

These were created one million years ago when the Po Plain was still a sea inlet. 
The marked itinerary allows the exploration of the central part of the woods.
