An almost unknown river, right tributary of the Tiber. A shady and green landscape, where the waters have dug in volcanic tuffs deep ravines and branched. Attendance animals known but discrete, often denounced only by signs caught by those who know how to interpret them: the porcupine quills, the imprint of the boar, sharp call and question the buzzard. And then the villages of Calcata and Mazzano Romano, two microcosms which look out on tiptoe. singular protected area, in the panorama while various of Lazio parks.
The Treja is a modest stream that rises from the monti Sabatini and merged into the Tiber at Civita Castellana. It is about 30 km route in which through a campaign largely cultivated, but the waters over time have created a world still wild: it is that of the gorges, carved out of the soft tufa of the ancient vulcano sabatino.
Established in 1982, the protected area covers 628 hectares in the territory of the municipalities of Calcata and Mazzano Romano.
