WWF Oasis of Morigerati

WWF Oasis of Morigerati


The WWF Oasis of Morigerati is one of the most outstanding Karst phenomena in Italy.

Here the Bussento River re-emerges from the bowels of the earth, and creates a system of caves of spectacular beauty, about 6 km further downstream from the La Rupe sinkhole where it disappears. 

The river has created a mysterious hypogeum among rapids, pools and waterfalls. A canyon covered with lush vegetation, where mosses, ferns, willows, alders grow next to ash, hornbeams, downy oaks and many other spontaneous species.

The area is Site of Community Importance, covers about 607 hectares and is also on the world list of Geoparks.
