About
The Natural Reserve of Salse di Nirano, which has about 50.000 visitors per year, is located in a low hill territory (elevation from 140 m to 308 m a.s.l.) of the Modena Apennine margin about 30 km from Modena. The salse are emissions of cold mud due to the ascent to the surface of salty and muddy waters mixed with gaseous (methane) and, in minor part, fluid hydrocarbons (petroleum veils) along faults and fractures.

Mud volcanoes... that are not volcanic! That's strange. It is worth visiting this place.
It was too dry when we went there 2 weeks ago, but still interesting to see.
It is a pity that we cannot go too close from the small cones.

If you're in the area you must see this. Cold volcanoes in the middle of the appenini. The trail is easy and you can get close to the volcanoes

Mud vulcanoes: Nice little geological wonders in the nighbourhood of Fiorano
Aug 2016 • Family
Little vulcanoes gurgling and spitting out methanic mud. A little botanic garden. A farm house introducing hillside country life in the 19th century. A restaurant at the foot of the volcanoes. An ideal place to make a nice walk or do some cycling if you are a sportsperson.

A place to grasp the earh's "breath"
Jun 2016 • Family
When I was studying in middle school, my science textbook classified the phenomena so-called "pseudo volcanic": sulphurous volcanoes, geysers, mofettes. It also recalled the cold mud volcanoes, citing it as the most important in Italy the Aragona "maccalube" (Sicily) and the Nirano "salse".
Finally, after decades, I've seen them.
In this case I was well expecting what I saw. But it is always exciting to grasp, through these phenomena, the earh's "breath"; to feel that under the surface we cultivate, we build, we walk, there is, disguised and latent, a force that comes from the depths. A force that reminds us that the earth had a beginning, and presumably will have an end ...

Interesting natural hiking resort in the hills near Maranello
Jun 2015
Impressing dirt geysirs looking out of the floor due to natural gas pressure. Well documented site, the area is also nice for hiking or taking a bycicle tour in the surrounding hills.

You gotta see this!

Millions of years ago there was a sea here. Now you can see the prehistoric water coming up from the underground. Impressive.

Weird place
Apr 2015 • Family
Nice place, curious phenomenon. You can park the car at the bottom of this area, and with a short walk look the small volcanos and have luch in one of the three restaurant. Not so far from Maranello.

The mud - volcanos of the Apennines

Very interesting natural event of bubbling mud volcanos. Close to Maranello related to a nice walk through the beginning of the Apennines in Emilia Romana.
