The Ofanto river
The Aufidus of the ancients is the largest river in Puglia and the longest river on the Adriatic coast south of the Reno. It is 134 km long and has a basin of 2730 square km. It starts in the Irpinian Plateau, under Piano dell'Angelo, south of Torella dei Lombardi, at an altitude of 716 m, and flows into the Adriatic between Margherita di Savoia and Barletta. Near its end, it is crossed by the beautiful Roman bridge from the Trajan epoch, called Ponte di Canne, near Canosa. The mouth of the Ofanto River is also a true naturalistic oasis, particularly because of the quantity of birds that winter and nest there.
