For some years the Castle of Vezio houses a center for the care and training of prey that allows the public to know, appreciate and support this ancient art.
With this initiative,, entering the Castle of Vezio you back to life the atmosphere of a time, between hawks and falconers.
The phases of training are held in the garden of the castle so as to be able to give the visitors a chance to take pictures, a closer look at the various specimens and be entertained by the falconer in detailed explanations about the history of falconry, its use modern, biology and training of birds of prey.
At the moment the birds of prey are 6, to be exact are 2 pojane Harris originating in Central and South America, a ferruginous buzzard coming from the Rocky Mountains of the United States of North and Canada, a barn owl and a real European, two owls on the Italian territory and a Lanner falcon in the Mediterranean basin and North Africa.
We would like to clarify that all animals are born and bred in captivity, would therefore not be able to survive in the wild, and is afforded the best mental and physical shape possible.
The hawks are exposed every day, weather permitting, normally by 10 to 16:00 in the castle garden.
