Fossil theme park
The fossils found in the area of ​​the river Marecchia testify that before the quarry here there was the sea.The existence of this fossil deposit was detected in the seventies, but only in 1981 began the excavation campaign, which brought to light over 2000 pieces. Most fossils are fish; because in the Pliocene, the whole area of ​​the deposit was submerged by the sea, like most of Italy. The deposit of the Marecchia is important because a large number of interesting specimens have been found: many genera, in fact, had never been found in the Mediterranean basin; fossils of fish today living in tropical and sub-tropical waters such as the Indian and Pacific Oceans have been found.
It is possible to request guided visits to “Parco della Cava” in the period April / October, by appointment with the Tourist Office of the Municipality of Poggio Berni.
