Pink flamingos in the salt fields of Carloforte

Located a few hundred meters from the town center, they were no longer in operation for many years, but that is why they have become the habitat of many species of waterfowl and consequently attract all those who deal with birdwatching.
Among the species that nest there are the Avocet, the Knight of Italy, the Little Tern and Little Egret.
Among the species that use the salt fields seasonally there is the Grey Heron and the Kingfisher and the Pink Flamingo with about 500 individuals surveyed by LIPU.

Ligurian, Mediterranean and North Africa gastronomic traditions have become intertwined over time and have been preserved by the refugees Tabarkini obviously adapting them to new food resources that they found on the island. The Arab influence is felt in cashcà, couscous variation based on semolina cooked in steam and enriched with vegetables cooked separately.
