Type of protected area - Where it is located
Typology: Guided Natural Reserve; established in 1972 with D.P.G.R. Trentino-Alto Adige, relating to the Corna Piana di Brentonico (April 28, 1972); in 1973 by order of the Municipality of Brentonico relating to the land around Malga Bés.
Region: Trentino-Alto Adige
The Bés-Corna Piana guided reserve occupies an area of 150 hectares in the northern part of the Monte Baldo chain between Vallagarina and Lake Garda, between 1,500 and 1,700 meters above sea level. It is a very small natural oasis within the Monte Baldo chain which stretches for about 35 km. With the other two nature reserves, that of Lastoni Selva Pezzi (980 hectares) and Gardesana Orientale (300 hectares) in the municipality of Malcesine, it aims to ensure the conservation and protection of the naturalistic peculiarities of the area, pending the establishment of the Natural Park of Monte Baldo.

The reserve is made up of Jurassic limestones, stratified dolomites and basaltic tuffs. During the glaciation period this area, together with the other peaks of the Baldese chain, emerged from the glaciers of Garda and Adige; these oases became a refuge for many species of flowers that managed to survive the freezing temperatures and keep themselves up to the present day. Among these species called glacial endemics, as representatives of the ancient tertiary flora of the Alps, we find: the rock raponzolo and the common bonarota. But in the floristic heritage of the Reserve there are other species with wonderful blooms of more recent origin (dating back to the period following the glaciations) including the Lilium bulbiferum, the Lilium martagon, the Negritella nigra, the Negritella miniata, the Lentopodium alpinum, the Aster alpinum.
The Reserve, presenting a varied morphology, offers refuge to many fauna species: the black grouse, the kestrel, the buzzard, the eagle and the roe deer.
