Bird snare of Castagneta

Bird snare of Castagneta


The city's most beautiful and intact specimen was used for capturing birds for scientific purposes.

Bird snares are a unique type of green architecture designed to capture birds. They are created through the patient pruning and shaping of trees, from which nets are hung: the birds remained entangled there, after the bird catcher frightened them by throwing a bogey out of their hiding place.
