Cavallino Treporti

Cavallino Treporti

Today, the town of Cavallino ('pony') shows few significant traces of its past, apart from the parish church dating back to the 18th century and the square overlooking the lagoon, dominated by the small bronze horse sculptured by Barbaro from Burano in 1948. From the village centre, a walk alongside the Pordelio Canal, (whose name derives from par el lio, 'for the lido') and the Veneta Littoral, along which the rafts carrying wood to the Arsenale used to transit in Renaissance times; this leads to the lagoon landscapes of the Casson Canal and the Valle Cavallino fishing reaches, home to little grebes, little egrets and red herons. The fish farms on the landscape are very picturesque: the fishing reaches of Valle Falconera and Valle di Musestre, for example, with the special architectural features of their fishing lodges, Casòn di pesca, and hunting lodges, Casòn di caccia, clearly outlined; and the fish farms protected by rows of tamarisk.
