Pantano Morghella is one of the largest swamps of Pachino. It is the third after Pantani Cuba and Longarini swamps. This “pantano” was originally a dew pond fed by rainwater until the creation of “Saline” in Marzamemi. They were dug in Arab period and used until the early 60s of the twentieth century after having been owned by the family Starrabba. The activity of the Saline ended when the salt production became insufficient. Today in the largest body of water live numerous fish and aquatic birds (including flamingos, ducks, mallards, cormorants, pelicans and herons). On the banks of the swamp there are still the old houses of the “Salinari”, people who worked in the salt mines. Swimming, hunting and fishing within the Saline of Marzamemi are expressly prohibited.
